  • Memorial niederwalddenkmal Observatory located on the heights of the Rhine is a "statue of Germania". I think we can be this city on the Rhine river cruise departure point because if you have time to stop. So in the winter I visited had suspended gondola from the city went up in the bus.

  • You should first deal with the history, before it expires in ahhhh and ohhhh tones. The Niederwalddenkmal was not created to be documented to the German victory over the French, but rather to reach Germany. The Germania is in the other Clara Schilling, the daughter of the sculptor Johannes Schilling, the model had to stand. So Clara Schilling with a gesengtem sword, Crown and breastplate: Holla the forest fairy. The lyrics of the song: The watch on the Rhine is also not the original. The verses, which significantly to far-right outside were, were deliberately omitted. You know that from the anthem of the United Kingdom. Nevertheless, last you do not affect, the Niederwald monument is worth already a journey.
