It is really a nice ride in the gondolas to the top of the hill. Beautiful ride over the vineyards. A really great view once you get there. Well worth the time and not too expensive. Trivia: Elvis shot a scene in one of the cable cars in the movie GI Blues. He sang "Pocket Full of Rainbows" to Juliet... More

Rüdesheim is a very nice place. We travelled on Saturday and finding a parking space took a little while. We walked through the Bazar that had some nice gift shops and reached the base of lift. Lift was quiet old one but the journey was very imprssive. Monument at the top is a very fine work of art. At the... More

The views from up at the monument are absolutely breathtaking. However, the ride up on the Seilbahn (cable car) to get up here was also beautiful and a lot of fun. After taking in the views for 15-20 minutes, we went on a walk through the Neidenwald forest, which was very beautiful and peaceful - coming out near Assmanhausen (my... More

It is an amazing monument in every way, no matter what angle you view it from. The grounds are nicely laid out, as well. There were placards on display showing the history of the monument, as well as the Seilbahn (cable car) that brings you up there. The views are absolutely wonderful from up there, with the majestic Rhine below... More

Had a wonderful time during the Christmas Season walking this area and taking the cable cars down into the Christmas market in Rüdesheim. Will make this an annual thing as it was a fun tradition we've began.

We went up the hill from our hotel after breakfast. Took about an hour and there is a great view of the Rhein. Worked off the meal and then there is a cafe next to the monument for a refreshing drink on the terrace. Unfortunately the cafe was closed when we got there but it is an easier walk down... More

This is a must when you visit this part of the world. The view from the monument is spectacular and worth the trip. The history involved in the monument adds to the awe of the visit. It is all the more amazing with the winter setting.

We took the gondola up. It was interesting to see, but nothing to really do up there. Once the rain and wind died down, the view was incredible.
