Taking the buckets up the hill is a wise investment to see this impressive post-war monument. It is a great place for walking in good weather, and you can stroll through the vineyards all the way back down to Ruedisheim.

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 monument is really impressive and worth to go. You will have an astonishing view over the vineyards, Rhein river, castles and the city of Rüdesheim. We also really recommend making the easy hiking through the forest.

The monument itself is interesting for its historical representation but, except its size, I didn’t find it particularly captivating. The view, however, is lovely over the vineyards, city and river. Riding the gondola up is particularly fine. Be forewarned that the car is open on...More
