  • In the pillar of the bridge at Remagen ' the peace museum. The museum gives a good picture of the events surrounding the bridge and crossing the Americans over the Rhine. A fun museum for about an hour. From the museum it is a short 20-minute walk to the city centre, on the banks of the Rhine where you good a snack and a drink.

  • It's a very quick and inexpensive yet eye opening experience, worth a few minutes if you're in town. Lots of stairs, so be prepared for that. We found it interesting.  more »
  • We had all seen within the hour, what most impressed was the top space, how many wars there have been on the world after 1945 and a large placard that says how many people has cost lives every country the 2nd ww.
