You can walk up the hill but we took the cable car and walked down. The views are really nice of the surrounding area and the Rhine River

Worth the trip for the stunning views over the Rhine River and the extensive vineyards, but unfortunately it wasn't very clear the day we went up. You have no idea how big this monument until you are actually face to face with it….the statue is a massive 38 metres tall. We took the gondola in Rüdesheim and enjoyed the views... More

Not easy to estimate how big this monument is when you looked up from down the hill. We took the cable-car in Rüdesheim having picturesque views of river Rhein and vineyards to get up near to the monument. The way itself with the cable-car is amazingly relaxing. Don't forget to have your camera with you. Once we have got there,... More

The view from here was good but only on a clear day, and it wasn't very clear the day we went up. It's possible to drive up here so probably cheaper than the cable car, unless you prefer the latter. We went there at 9.30am and even by that time it was full of school children. So probably a busy... More

Even for a non-German this is an imposing and very interesting monument. It is a piece of history that takes us back to a time of empires and kings. The view of the Rhine makes it great and you get there via a chair-lift which is very cool.

Worth the trip for the views from the cable car up and then the views over the Rhine. Lovely garden and some good woodland nature walks. Café at the top.

Husband and I were in Rudesheim for only a few hours, and decided to skip the Mechanical Music Museum in favour of the cable car that takes you to the top of an amazing view over the Rhein, plus the Niederwald Monument. The monument depicts Germania, which represents the unification of Germany. The views from the cable car on the... More

The monument is set high above the town of Ruedesheim and can be seen from miles around. It's only when you get up there that you realise how enormous it is. It's possible to walk up the to monument but the best way is via the cable car that goes up and up over the vineyards. They're open to the... More
