Insights into Andernach's history
From the Round Tower to St. Mary's Cathedral
The Round Tower. It is one of the landmarks of Andernach. It stood in the town for 40 years before Christopher Columbus discovered America. Built by the citizens. As a symbol of power and wealth. Preserved by the citizens. As a testimony to an eventful town history. In 1689, the Round Tower even withstood an attempted blast by the French. A hole remained as a scar. Take some time. Immerse yourself in Andernach's exciting past.
Similar to the Round Tower, St. Mary's Cathedral dominates the townscape of Andernach. A wonderful Romanesque basilica. A stamp of history. Built around 1200, its four towers rise imposingly into the sky. It quietly watches over the town. Its name is actually the Parish Church of the Assumption of Mary. But for most people in Andernach it is the Mariendom, or simply "the cathedral".
The Andernach Historical Garden is definitely worth a visit. Here you will discover excavations from Roman times as well as interesting horticultural culture. An insight into the time of the Roman Empire. In the middle of Andernach. Columns. Original preserved testimonies. Or visualised true to the original. Enjoy the Roman history of Andernach up close.
