Take the gondola lift up to the top and as well as the monument there are beautiful views of the Rhine and town of Rudesheim. There is a restaurant/café (which sells alcohol too) between the cable car and monument where you can sit outside in...More

We had a lovely trip to the monument in the cable car and then a walk around the area. It was really nice. The monument is amazing, much larger than you imagine when you get up close to it. Well worth a visit.

There are two ways to go up the monument. You can either take the cable car or walk up the meandering vineyards for a beautiful view over Rhein. The Monument uphill was erected to commemorate the unification of Germany. Highly recommended particularly on a fine...More

We got there by car - no problems finding it, ample parking (for a fee). Walk the short stretch to the monument and enjoy the spectacular views over the vineyards and the Rhine valley. Small visitor centre next to the cable car station with reasonably...More

I cannot say for positive, but we went up the cable car from Rudesheim, hiked to the area above Assmannhausen, and took the chairlift down. I saw two dogs on chairs coming up, so they have to go down also. Of course it is... More
