After riding the gondola over the vineyards this was an easy walk through a pleasant park. Views were nice. The history leading up to the monument is not obvious for visitors so you need a guide or to read a bit before going.

Well worth a visit, a nice walk up to the monument or you can take the cable car which will give you great views over the vineyard and then maybe walk back down to the village. Go early as it gets quite busy, also you can get better photos when it is quiet.

Super fun going up the cable car above the vineyards. The views were super. We took pictures at the monument, enjoyed the view and headed back to town in the cable car. Wonderful trip.

I arrived to Ruedesheim early at 9 and walked through the vineyards up to the monument. The view was stunning and it was only around 2,5 km. but a bit steep some places walking up one of the grand cru vineyards of Rheingau. Arriving up there the view was even better and I then took the cable car down -... More

This is a monument celebrating the unification of Germany in 1871. It has great views of Rudesheim and Bingen across the Rhine. The best bit though is the tiny little cable cars on your ride up - fantastic!

I'm still not sure what this monument was supposed to be celebrating but I guess it was something pretty spectacular (by somebody's standards!). The views from up there are worth going for. Magnificent view over the river and the town. I'd recommend taking the cable car to get there, as that is great fun in itself.

A trip highlight for us was taking the cable car up over the vineyards, walking to the impressive monument and then to a few other ruins on our way to the chairlift down to Ammenhausen. There we caught a boat to the Rheinstein castle. After spending about 2 hours exploring this fine example of 1800 architecture, we caught another boat... More

We chose to take the cable-car up to see this monument, there are a number of options for the cable-car where you can descend to a nearby town and possibly take a riverboat back, we chose however on this occasion to just have the simple up and down option. The monument is really quite detailed and worth the visit but... More

Huge monument, amazing views down to Bingen and The Rhine. Very clean and manicured grounds. Only negative is having to pay 1 euro each to use the toilet and also having a guy sitting outside the toilet with a table full of things that may be needed in a toilet was rather bizarre!
