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.

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.
