Recap the history of German unification while enjoying the great view of Rhine Valley. The monument itself is magnificent. Take the cable car to Rudesheim and enjoy a glass of wine at the pubs before you move on.

From the chairlift it was a short walk to the monument, going up hill. The monument was massive and you could walk up some stairs to get closer to it to see the detail. the monument was built to celebrate the nation of Germany. The views of the town are spectacular and there is a place to buy a glass... More

It is worth looking... More

When we arrived at the top it was crowded and Hot. There is not much shade around the monument and temps were in the upper 90's. The view of the Rhein was absolutely breathtaking. The cable car ride was smooth and fun.

Fun to ride the cable car to see this monument. The statue itself is very impressive, and the views of the town and river are great.

This monument is a fantastic sight. Everything is in the German language (naturally), so I suggest doing your research about this area and what it offers before just going out there and visiting it. There is a foot trail that leads to this monument, also you could take a cable car a portion of the way up the hill side... More
