We returned to Rüdesheim and of course that means another’s trip on the cable cars up to the Niederwald Monument to take in the stunning views of the Rhein and the fabulous vineyards. Everyone visiting Rüdesheim needs to experience this

The gondolien is indeed for two Persons but it is comfortable. We visited the place outside the peak tourist season and did not need to queuing for the ticket office. July might be different. Better to reserve time for that... More
