There are two ways to go up the monument. You can either take the cable car or walk up the meandering vineyards for a beautiful view over Rhein. The Monument uphill was erected to commemorate the unification of Germany. Highly recommended particularly on a fine day.

We got there by car - no problems finding it, ample parking (for a fee). Walk the short stretch to the monument and enjoy the spectacular views over the vineyards and the Rhine valley. Small visitor centre next to the cable car station with reasonably priced catering and friendly staff.

Niederwalddenkmal Neiderwald Monument Ruedescheim am Rheine Hesse Germany was erected to commemorate the unification of Germany. This memorial is rather elaborate and beautiful.

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 the sides, so dress warmly on a cool day.

We walked down. There is a fine meandering walk through the vineyard IF you don’t get lost as we did and wind up walking down a fairly steep and quite rocky trail. It is not clearly signed. I’d definitely recommend the gondola ride up and if your navigation skills are better than mine, the half hour or so walk back to town. (You may also take the gondola back down.)

An easy trip up with the cable car rewarding you with amazing views to the Rhine Valley. I would recommend walking back down as it is downhill an easy walk through the vineyards and even more amazing views to enjoy.
