Tips

  • Jesko

    The monumental Niederwald monument, visible from afar, has stood on the Rüdesheimer Berg since its inauguration in 1883. It was built during the time of the German Empire and is in the same tradition as, for example, the German Corner in Koblenz or the Monument to the Battle of the Nations in Leipzig. One can argue about the symbolism, but the monument is undisputedly impressive from near and far. Many paths from the Rhine Valley lead up to Germania, one steeper than the other. You can save yourself the worst inclines by not taking the shortest route, but none of the many variants is easy. For this you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the Rhine Valley, Bingen and the Nahe estuary. There is also a road and even a cable car going up here which explains the tourist crowds on weekends.

    By bike on the main road.
    However, we prefer the drive through the vineyards. The views are worth the effort

    The Niederwald Monument is located on the edge of the Landschaftspark Niederwald above the town of Rüdesheim am Rhein. At his feet are the vineyards of the Rüdesheimer Berg. The monument was to commemorate the unification of Germany in 1871. Source Wikipedia
