  • The Niederwalddenkmal is accessible from Rüdesheim from the cable car. When standing in front of the monument is more than impressed. It is huge and represents the Germania there. Beautifully decorated and versatile, the Memorial pleased everyone. Can you not miss!

  • Great for a walk. Surrounded by beautiful woodland. Fantastic views. An absolute must! The food is very expensive. Toilets cost 50 cents and are unfortunately not clean, the staff is extremely unfriendly.

  • The monument is beautiful-but looking to the other side, it is nothing less than awesome! Pictures can be taken at this place at sunrise on a cloudless day is indescribably beautiful!

  • 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...
