I have visited Niederwald Monument four or five times over the years with friends. It's always a great day out all year round what ever the weather. Although I have to say it is preferable if it's dry when you make this trip be it summer or winter. The Niederwald Monument is an impressive and powerful monument but it's the... More

During our Wine Tour we visited Rüdesheim am Rhein and took the 2-persons cable car up through the vineyards to see the Niederwald Monument and afterward walked through the woods (approx. 2 km) to the chair lift to beautiful town Assmannshausen. This is wonderful experience and highly recommended.

It was a blisteringly cold day but the monument epitomised the Wagnerian spirit of the Reich. A splendid piece of kit

This place is like two different world in winter and summer... In summer if you have a clear sky with crispy sunny day....you will witness some stunning view of the Rhein river meandering through the towns and vineyards. Ofcourse the monument stands tall almost touching the sky and adds beauty to the place. And then you have the Lavender spread... More

The monument stands high on a hilltop overlooking the river Rhine and the town of Rudesheim. It is surrounded by parkland and nature trails and a couple of nearby restaurants, and is accessed by a spectacular cable car ride from the centre of Rudesheim. Constructed in the late 19th century to commemorate the original unification of Germany, the centrepiece is... More

The monument is simply stunning, but do the round trip of cable car, then walk to the monument through the vast park, then take the chairlift down the other side, followed by the boat back to your start point at the tourist office. All for approximately 12 euros! Take a picnic and you will have a great day ! (Weather... More
