“It's big”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

This is a large monument above Rudesheim which can be reached by driving or walking from Rudesheim or viewed as part of a round trip with cable car, chair lift and steam paddle boat between Rudesheim and Assmannshausen.
It commemorates the end of the Franco Prussian war and the unification of German States.

This large and beautifully cast and sculptured monument is well worth the chairlift and walk from Asmannshausen or alternateively the cable car ride from Rudesheim.

“Great Piece of History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

When I saw this magnificent monument, I thought back to the years of two German states. What a great way to remember the days of glory. The grounds from the monument offer a stunning view of the valley below.
