  • Simply beautiful! Breathtaking view, there's a cafe at the top too and there was even a small brass band playing yesterday!
  • Really nice viewing point. Easy to reach by car or cable cart.
  • Stunning views from up here, you can drive up or walk to save the cost of the cable car which is really not worth the trouble. Some nice walks around the park as well.
  • Great view from the top. Take the cable car up and walk down to enjoy the area.
  • 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...
