The gondola car ride up here was great. On a nice day you can get a great view of the Rhein River and soar over fields of grapevines. This is well worth the $4 Euros it costs.

Take the cable car, but dress warm for chilly weather. The view is stunning, the ride quiet and relaxed. The monument is huge and a great photographic piece. The views are breathtaking.

The cable car ride is nice. Great views. But it can be cold and windy so dress appropriately. The monument is impressive. Nice to walk in the woods.

This monument provides an amazing spot to see sunrise and moon rises over the Rhein and the towns of Rudesheim and Bingen these places have strong connections to St. Hildegard de Bingen

Great place to view across the river and surrounding land. To bad none of the stats displayed on the board for the statue were in English.

This monument is well worth a visit. The views of the river below are amazing and there is plenty of information regarding the work done on the monument to keep it in good condition.

The first best part of this is taking the gondola ride up to the monument. The views are nice and you travel above the vineyard. Once to the monument it will surprise you on its large size. There too the views of the river and valley are excellent. You typically ride back down on the gondola but as a choice... More

Really nice location on a ridge above the valley. Quite an impressive monument but it might have been nice if some of the explanations that were shown nearby could have been in multiple languages but I do understand that it is significant to Germany.

The monument commemorating formation of Germany stands on top of the hill providing amazing views of the river, vineyards and the valley. Take the trolley car up to the monument and then walk down for a complete experience
