The imposing Niederwald monument is located above the town of Rüdesheim. The monument commemorates the unification of Germany in 1871. The construction of the monument took six years. The Niederwald Monument has a total height of 38.18 meters and weighs 75 tons. The main figure with 12.5 meters height shows the warrior Germania.

Very imposing if you stand in front of this huge monument, besides, from there you have a super nice view over the Rhine & Bingen.
Highly recommended highlight 👍🏼

In the 18th century, more precisely in 1788, Karl Maximilian Graf von Ostein had a monopteros built on the Niederwald above Rüdesheim am Rhein, which became part of his newly created park. Even then, his often important guests were enthusiastic about the grandiose view of the Rheingau with its impressive river - the Rhine.
Even today, the view from the Niederwald temple conveys pure Rhine romance. The magnificent view to the south shows the Rhine Valley in its grandeur and uniqueness in every season.

Very nice destination. You can hike here or combine this with the ring ticket. Then you can go hiking, cable car and boat trips for a small price. From or to Rüdesheim via Assmannshausen.

There you have a wonderful view of the Rhine and you can see the Germania statue very close, which is very beautiful and definitely worth a trip.
Either you take the cable car or you walk up the vineyard. When you walk up, you should note that there is not really any shade there and when the sun shines down it can get exhausting very quickly.
Unfortunately, it is also very crowded there and I would not recommend going there on the weekend, rather during the week.

Entry point for two stages of the Rheinsteig. Reachable by cable car from Rüdesheim and by car, so well visited.

The proximity to the cable car has made the Niederwaldtempel and its surroundings a place that is used in many ways for cultural encounters.

You can already see them from afar, as they threatened on the coppice. Pretty monumental. The story is well documented in some display boards for those interested. There are plenty of seating and impressive views, but it is also very crowded in good weather. If you are within walking distance of the monument you are quite alone again, as most probably only the way from the train to the monument and back again.

From the mountain station of the cable car Rüdesheim you have a magnificent view across the vineyards across the Rhine.

The temple was destroyed towards the end of World War II and re-opened in 2006 after its restoration. From there you have a magnificent view of the Rhine.

Erected against the former archenemy France, as a sign of strength and to accept the Rhine as a German stream. Come on, we are strong and powerful as the inscription proves. "There is a call like Donnerhall, to the Rhine, to the Rhine, to the German Rhine! We want to be the guardian of the stream."

Beautiful statue from old times - in the evening little visited and still a great view!

Beautiful hiking area and then by cable car to Rüdesheim.

Beautiful view of the Rhine, you can see the Imperial Germania statue from close. Unfortunately, it is also very crowded, because you can also drive the Niederwalddenkmal by car.

If you take a few hours and make the ring tour, you will have many beautiful views of the Rhine Valley on the way over the Niederwald, including this one here. My tip is, however, really the ring tour, as the masses of visitors usually romp right at the Niederwald Demkmal and you can explore, so a little quieter and more decelerated, the landscape and other sights of the Niederwald.

Stay here again always, for great views of the Rhine, romantic ambience and relaxation - small tip, in the evening when it's dark, go there, then you see the whole world under it very small!
