This monument is nearly too "German" to us! But we visited it on the 200 year birthday of Bismarck. We felt that we had to be there on that day! But for sure, the view to the river is the best part of that attraction. And then the Restaurant seems to be burned down! recently!

Visited here many years ago, lovely place to visit. It costs 7 euros for the round trip on the cable car, really enjoyed the ride up to the monument. You may remember it from Elvis's GI blues film.

We went up with the Cable car to the Niederwald Monument. the view on the way up is fantastic. The way down can be by the cable car or by foot (appx. 45 min) through Vineyards

Visited this during our 7 day holiday to the Rhine Valley with National Holidays. We went up by coach and although the weather was a bit cold we still enjoyed the spectacle and panoramic views.

It is in the top of the hill. You can walk or go with the cable car there. It was amazing how that statue was made. It is worth a visit if you are near Frankfurt.
