Stories Around Andernach at the Rhine
Andernach is a picturesque town on the Rhine. It is known for its rich history, culture and traditions that have run through its streets and buildings for many centuries. Many stories and legends entwine around Andernach, some of which are still told today.
THE OCHS AND THE CITY GATE
Even though our hotel in Andernach was newly built in 2016, the place where it is located is undoubtedly historic. Andernach is considered to be one of the oldest cities in Germany, where even the Celts promenaded. During the Roman period, it then became an important transshipment point for local and long-distance trade, especially for pumice, trass and basalt. The center of the city is still small but fine. A real eye-catcher! The excellently preserved city wall. And exactly here, not far from the former “Ochsentor” of the city, that city gate through which sheep and oxen were driven in former times, stands also our hotel at the Ochsentor.
It was not so long ago when you could still look at English lawns at the Andernach city wall. Now fruits, vegetables and herbs grow there, in colorful splendor and organic quality. Instead of “no trespassing” it says “picking allowed”. Harvesting is allowed to everyone, weeding, of course. The people behind the Edible City project have turned public green spaces and parks into usable spaces for all. In the beginning, there were 101 varieties of tomatoes and a lot of enthusiasm; in the meantime, the people of Andernach enjoy the variety of countless fruits and vegetables and appreciate that they can enjoy the greenery of the city not only with their eyes, but also with their palate.
Anyone who visits Andernach will also meet the baker’s boys “Fränzje” and “Döres” at some point. The people of Andach have immortalized them with statues at the Rhine Gate and at the fountain on the market square. Nobody knows exactly what is fiction and what is truth behind the legendary story, but it is always entertaining. One night in 1474, a horde of warlike Linzers attacked the city. While the people of Andernach were fast asleep, Fränzje and Döres alone put the attackers to flight. Their weapons: Beehives, which they threw at the intruders. Fearing the angry swarms of bees, the enemies rushed away.
