Exellent view

Lovely place to visit with a wonderful view over the Rhein. Possible to cross the river by boat with the car if you want to take the other side back.

If you want to have a perfect view of the town of Rudesheim, then take the cable car up to this highest point in the town. You can also enjoy the view of the beautiful grapevine right below you during your cable car ride up to the monument. They are currently enhancing the facilities of this monument and is expected...

Beautiful huge monument on top of Niederwald. Splendid view of the Rhine valley from there! Families can have picnics or wander into the woods to the nearest castle ruin.

The monument is of a type expressing German optimism, might and sense of nationalism in the wake of 19th century unification. Views are spectacular over the Rhine and the area is now being developed as a UNESCO World heritage site. Worth a visit from Rüdesheim via the Seilbahn or from Assmannshausen, also via a Seilbahn. There are many opportunities for... More

Well worth a trip up to see this monument. My advice is go by Seilbahn from Rudesheim. The workmanship in the statues are first class as is the view it commands. Currently (May 2015) there was no restaurant due to re-development.

We went up to this on the gondola from Rudesheim. The view from the monument is amazing. The monument is very imposing and there are walks in the woods behind.

This monument is nearly too "German" to us! But we visited it on the 200 year birthday of Bismarck. We felt that we had to be there on that day! But for sure, the view to the river is the best part of that attraction. And then the Restaurant seems to be burned down! recently!

Wanted to go here for the views and the trip on the mini gondola. You can get a single trip if you fancy a walking down from the monument or a return ticket. We chose return as pushed for time. The statue Is huge and the views are lovely and the journey to the top is great. Worth a visit... More
