Rudesheim Niederwald Cable Car Excursion Reviews

For unparalleled views of Rudesheim's Old Town and the Rhine River, take the cable car ride up to Niederwald Monument, which was resurrected in honor of the unification of Germans after the Franco-Prussian war. The monument itself is a sight, but the ride and views are well worth an excursion.
Views excellent

Our excursion offered a visit to the Siegfried Musical Instrument Museum and a ride up the cable car. The musical instrument museum while interesting was a "push through" by its resident guide - lasted under 20 minutes. The cable car ride is over the grape fields and up to see the gigantic monument on top of the hill which celebrates victory in the Franco-Prussian War and its unification by Prussia. The views over the Rhine River are mesmerizing. We had time to walk the streets in this old town to see its half-timbered houses and many shops. The Rudesheim Coffee is a popular drink - 7 E - loads of whipping cream on top of the flavored drink. Read Less

Great views from the cable car and lovely park at the top with the monument. The town itself is very nice. Spent a few hours wandering around the town, and a pleasant walk back to the ship.

What a beautiful little village! The cable car to the top of the mountain and the 1891 statue was wonderful with breath-taking views of the river and surrounding valleys.

Our tour at night included a trip to a winery for a wine tasting experience. Was well done. The Choo Choo train ride was excellent and fun. Three types of wine were tasted with a narrative by the owner of the winery. Very nice place to visit. Next day we did the gonola ride on the Rudesheim's gondola up over the vineyards and saw the monument that was built on top of the hill in 1883 to represent the union of all Germans. We went back to the town and had a Rudesheim coffee. Loved this little town, one of my favourite ports of call. Read Less
