“Lovely views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Worth taking a ride up on the little cable car across over the vies and once there so wonderful view down to the Rhine and Ruedesheim. Very impressive statute and some informative displays about the building of the monument. Would recommend taking advantage of the round trip with boat trip back to Ruedesheim from Asshmanshausen or the other way round which involves a gentle walk through the woods.

“Great view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Great view over the rhine, as for rudesheim, they always take you there on a sunday when every thing is closed, boring apart from a street of bars, I would rather go some where more interesting.

“Phantastic view from that monument to the Rhine and the region Rheingau”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

It is great to see that munument, which can be reacher either by street or from the Old City Rüdesheim, near Drosselgasse, with cabin cars. Great sightseeing it is to be there and if the weather is nice. The monument NIederwald-Denkmal with the Germany on top of it has to do with history of Germany from over 120 years ago after a war with France and also reunification of German regions. There is a restaurant too and lot of souvenirs can be bought. Some time ago i had a special permission to play some music with accordion for the guests. There is forest and nice paths to walk along. Sometimes even a horse waggon is near the parking plots and carries people around. As far as i read it was part of a movie with Elvis Presley and this area can be seen in that movie, but he was not personally here, but his double as far as i read about it.In some years the cable cabin cars brought averag of over 300.000 people to that monument each year and more than 30 million since decades of years. It is worth to spent many hours there, it depens what persons do like and also it can be seen in less than one hour. Regarding wheel chair it needs to come with a along the streets not with the cable car.

“An Important Monument”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

If you are in Ruedesheim the Niederwald monument is well worth a visit. Take the round trip by ferry, chairlift and cable car. The views of the Rhine and vineyards are worth the trip and the monument itself provides an insight into an important period of German history.

“Get the first chairlift to avoid the crowds!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

There are very good views and forest walks but you need to be early to avoid the crowds. I think we prefer Britannia to Germania - less aggressive perhaps? The modern restaurant near the cable car terminus is really missing an opportunity as its food was only average but the demand large. It is worth going for the views and the walk down through the vineyards.
