Beautiful Monument with a Georgous View.
Sep 2021
Nice monument commemorating the end of the Franco-Prussian war. This established "Germany" and is also considered the "Unification of Germany". There are benches in front of the monument, facing the river, and what a view it is! You can walk up from the town of Ruedesheim am Rhein or ride the cable car/gondola. There are bathrooms and a small restaurant nearby. Enjoy!

Amazing view!

The size of the monument is impressive!
There are also several benches for you to sit, take a breather and enjoy the amazing view.
You can walk up there or you can take the "Seilbahn" (cable car) for about 9 € (return tickets). Visiting the monument is free.

Breathtaking views
Jul 2021
this is a must if you are traveling in this area of the Rhine. the way upwinds through a beautiful forest. the views from the top are striking, the monument is really strong and meaningful.
I especially liked the vines rolling down from the top.
The monument and surroundings are well maintained with comfortable paths also suitable for trollies and wheelchairs.
there is ample paid parking and a place to get some refreshments and snacks
there are also several treks which enable walking up (or down) from the monument to Rudesheim

Splendid Germania
Jun 2021
German history has since the end of WWII been very shy to promote nationalism, but this amazing monument has a profound meaning in the German psyche, as it commemorates the birth of the nation after the 1870-1871 Franco-Prussian war. The Germania allegory representing the new-founded nation is overlooking the Rhine over the wine growing slopes of Rüdesheim. This is as far as I know the only colossal Germania statue in the whole country, and other Germanias are scarce, other than a couple in paintings. Getting there is easy enough, and although everything around was closed due to covid-19 restrictions, there are a couple of shops and a bar surrounding the site. Only complaint, the parking lot is quite small and you'll be charged 4,00€ for your stay (4,00€ daily charge).

I visited the Niederwald Monument as part of a River tour. The monument is perched on top of a large ridge overlooking the river valley. I was struck by both the overall size and detail of the monument. I enjoyed just relaxing in the sun and taking in the scope of the project.

Nice monument with a great view
Oct 2020 • Couples
We stopped at the Niederwald Monument after having walked the nearby trails that day. The monument is very well done and I appreciated that all of the signs were in English. I thought the displays did a nice job laying out the history of the monument and its connection to King Wilhelm and the WWII years (Hitler even held a rally here in 1933!). First, make sure you ride the Seilbahn tram up to the monument, as you’ll get great pictures of the monument behind the many vineyards. At the top, you’ll have the chance to see some great trails and see some fantastic views of the Rhine. Finally, there were bathrooms and a small cafe up near the monument as well. Highly recommend you visit Niederwald Monument.

Majestic view

Perfect view of Rhine from above. Down the Rhine is it also a majestic view. The food kiosk has still a lot to improve though. It would've been a much better experience if up there, there is a better restaurant or wine bar.
