Great view

Worth the €5 to take the lift to the top. Enjoy a glass of local wine and the view overlooking Rüdesheim and local vineyards!

We took the tram up to the monument. We walked over and down to the small town of Assmanshausen. It was a long walk. Very beautiful. Not many people. Saw where the Nahe River flows into the Rhein.

My family used the cable car to this monument and had a lot of fun. The children loved riding along over the vineyard below. travel in late spring to summer and see the vines growing.

There is an excellent ticket you can buy at the tourist information office, the cost is 16.50 euros per person. With this you ride to the monument in a small cable car, the views from the top are fantastic, there is then a short pleasant walk through the woods, it is paved and level. You then ride down in the... More

The best part of visiting this UNESCO monument - besides the beautiful view of the Rhein and towns from above - was getting there and back. We took a gondola ride up, hiked through the well-marked woods (wear bug spray), took a ski lift down into the next little town, had lunch, then took a ferry boat ride back to... More

This is the view that you THINK about when you think of wine country in Germany. On a clear day, as far as you can see, the Rhein River at the bottom of the valley, grape vines as far as the eye sees growing up the hills, and this magnificent HUGE memorial. If possible, take the cable car up (easy... More

We visited on a National Holidays day out from Kamp Bornhofen to Rudesheim, I was stunned by the size and the sheer majesty of the monument. The site is breath-taking and the views over the Rhine Valley are panoramic on a clear day, which we fortunately had. If you are in the area its a once in a lifetime experience... More

Enjoy a ride on the cable car and escape into a breath taking view. This majestic huge monument is true old Germany with its amazing detail. The view of Rudesheim on the Rhine is magnificent. Weather is important on this trip so double check. Just beautiful! Worth every minute..

This monument can be reached by automobile, by riding in a cable car (for a small fee), or by hiking through amazing vineyards. It was built to commemorate the establishment of the German Empire in 1871 under Kaiser Wilhelm I and Chancellor Otto von Bismarck. The views of the Rhine river and the surrounding area are spectacular. Packing a picnic... More

Pre-requisite: the weather should be excellent with very little clouds and no rain. And you should plan to reach this place by 1 pm local time. If you do so, you get ample time to spend at this wonderful place where you have a huge monument, well crafted with great details, and in front of you there is a magnificent... More
