What a great trip out to 'Rudesheim Am Rhein' even in winter. Take the train out and have a wander over the town there is always a restaurant open for lunch. Going up to the monument is easy by taxi and then take the time to walk down through the vineyards. It is a gradual descent and you do feel... More

We traveled on the Rudesheim cable car and then walked through the park with the Germania Monument to the Assmanshausen ski lift. It was quite a walk and will be tiring if you are older and it is hot. It is rough under foot. The monument itself is stunning and beautiful! The views across the Rhein are incredible. The ski...

Visited here this weekend on a trip to Rudesheim. This statue is huge! Beautiful detail up close. The views are amazing overlooking the Rhein. The restaurant and lift are closed until April, so we'll come then as well. Parking of €2 was the only charge. Along the Reisling Route hiking trail.

massive statue at the end of the cable car ride with a good view along the rhein. The café at the top was shut when I went but had it been open I would not have gone in as its was in a poor state. Take a flask instead.

The is a huge monument overlooking the Rhine River. We took a cable car to the mount and then spent time looking at the magnificent view afforded from this monument. We then walked back to Rudesheim - which took about 40 minutes.

Fantastic views, easily accessed by the cable car (if open). We would love to return to see the vineyards in peak season.

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.
