Wonderful views, well worth the trip up in the cable car over the vineyards. Also suggest walking through the woods to take the chair lift to Assmunhausen, a pretty, old German town.

The easiest way to get up here is via the cable car and once at the top, the sheer size of the monument becomes apparent - it is huge. The monument was built in the 1870's to commemorate the unification of Germany and is a massive, grand monument. Very impressive and highly recommended if you are in Rudesheim and have... More

This huge monument, high up in the mountains above the Rhine is such a lovely place to visit. The monument itself is so impressive, and views of the Rhine below make it a magnificent sight to explore. Combine that with the quaintness and history of Ruedesheim, plus the chair lift ride that you can take up and down from Ruedesheim,... More

Historical significance with a great view of the Rhine River and town of Rudesheim. Take a tram, or hike up through the vineyards.

If you are travelling to Rüdesheim am Rheim, this is most probably on your list of places to visit. A good and nicely built monument giving a good sight to late 19th Century German history but also an important part of west European History. Marvelous Views of Rhein and the Bingen city across the river.

This was an included attraction in our recent European River Cruise. It was a bit of a wet day but we still took the chairlift up to the Monument. We didn't read our info guide beforehand and actually had no idea what the monument was all about. The plaques and inscriptions are all in German (which is totally fair enough).... More

Built to comemorate German's victory over the French in the Franko-Prussian war. Well how do you get there first is the hard... More
