This chair saves a long climb to a great hiking area with good meals at the end! Both long and short hikes with easy terrain are available and the restaurant near the top of the lift is superb.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We have seen that it is a popular thing to do to get the cable car from Rudesheim to the top and then the chair lift down to Assmannshausen. Is it possible to do this in reverse, buy a ticket in Assmannshausen and end up back in Rudesheim.
