  • The monument is perfect as a destination for the entire family. There are beautiful hiking trails and chairlifts from Assmanshausen and Rüdesheim from that result here. The monument is young and old the opportunity to think about the history of Germany and to exchange ideas.

  • It was beautiful. I'm from Mainz but live in the state's took my daughter and grandson and mother over there to visit family.... Miss it...
  • It's a beauty spot that over looks the town of Bingen and Rudeshiem and the river Rhine. U can either catch the cable car or hike up passing through vineyards. There is a restaurant and bar and toilet facilities at the top.
  • Nice to see. Great view. Parking price 2,50 euro
  • Amazing view. If you're lucky, you can see the rainbow fall to the river
  • Always a good view. Great historical monument.
