You can enjoy inline skating right on the banks of the Moselle, paddling along the water's edge in a canoe or taking off from the river in a hydroplane and soaring to dizzying heights - this part of town is ideal for people who are looking for an active or sporty holiday. Those who prefer to enjoy a more tranquil experience can simply savour the picturesque backdrop of the little village.
Rippling right through the heart of Andel's unspoiled forest landscape is the "Goldbach".
Small nuggets of gold have been found right here in the clear waters of the river.
And even today, a walk along its shady banks may still prove to be a profitable experience. The local people hide nuggets here from time to time, which young prospectors can proudly pocket as a souvenir of a successful family day out, or which older gold panners can exchange for a glass of wine in one of Kues' typical Moselle wine taverns. It's worth to visit to the Goldgräberbrunnen ("Gold-digger's fountain") at the heart of the village, a local tribute to the Andel gold rush. It is no coincidence that the most famous vineyard in these parts is called "Andeler Goldschatz" (Golden treasure of Andel).
The church, which dates from the 12th Century, commemorates the seven industrious inhabitants of Andel who were single-handedly responsible for its construction. Even solid oak beams weighing up to ten hundredweights were not considered too bulky to be used in building the tower and belfry.
The most recent example of Andel's pioneering spirit is the Moselle's one and only lighthouse, which has been a feature on the riverbank since 2004.
