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

For pleasant afternoon take a €13 Ring ticket. Go up the gondola, admire the monument and the amazing Rhine Valley views then walk the path on beyond the monument to the hotel restaurant above Assamhausen. This should take between 20 to 30 minutes depending on your pace. Stop for a drink then proceed down the chair lift Assmanhausen to link... More

Astonishing view from the top, and a lovely hike back into town with a stop for a glass of wine overlooking the Rhine.!

A short trip by cable car will take you to the top of the hill where the Neiderwald Monument is situated. This is an amazing monument enhanced by the wonderful views along the Rhine valley. Well worth the trip.

Visited on 7 September 2013, as part of a day trip where I saw many small towns along the Rhine. This monument is very accessible, and there's no hassle getting to it. It's a 15 minute tram ride from the village to the actual monument, during which you'll pass over lush vineyards and have an awesome view of the Rhine... More

We took the chairlift over the vineyards and took the short walk to the monument which is very majestic and interesting. I had trouble getting the whole monument in a photo due to it's size. The view from the monument area was fabulous and we enjoyed the experience. There is a cafe for refreshments.

The 'Ring Tour' is excellent value at € 13. Cable car from Ruedesheim, nice walks and great views from park around the monument, chair lift down to Assmannshausen and river boat back. Couldn't be better.
