A breathtaking view of the Rheingau. The monument itself isn't anything too spectacular. But the view, oh, the view...

We were actually in a group with tour guide who took us to the cable cars in a charming little mini train. It was a displaced American citizen, residing for the past 12 years in Germany, so it was very pleasant to be able to clearly understand him. He have us the history of the monument and the nearby rivers... More

My wife & I visited Rudesheim on Wednesday 4/30 as part of a riverboat cruise. The city was charming with the day's highlight being a trip up the mountainside dangling above vineyards in an open-air gondola with stunning views all around. At the top we strolled leisurely thru a lovely park to see the famous, awesome, patriotic Niederwald/Germania Monument, which... More

Take the cable car from Assmanshausen (or Rudesheim) and walk across to the monument. YOu will get a fantastic view of the Rhine. A little restaurant on top gives you some good options to grab a beer or a bite

Great chair lift ride with excellent views at the top. Don't forget your camera! We just had the Single Trip option, but you can opt for the 'round trip' which is the chair lift, a several kilometre walk and then take a boat trip up the Rhine, all for around 13 Euros.

Well worth the Cable car ride to see this, and enjoy the amazing Panorama of the Rhine town below you - the trip up is over vineyards, and watching the automatic grape collection is really interesting.

We took the cable car both directions and on both directions we were impressed with the great view but the tranquility of the ride. The statue is huge and is a monument of massive scale! The view from the top is magnificent and unfortunately we were time critical and did not do any of the walks which looked very worthwhile
