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.

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
