The views from the Seselbahn are definitely the best in the Rhein - I can comprare to at least 4 or 5 others. However, it was a pitty that the closing time was 5pm, so there was not a lot of time to spend at the top, we enjoyed most views from the chair ride. The way up and down... More

Very steep but worth forgetting the worry about fear of heights, it's brilliant the views are superb and the feeling of peace and quiet is amazing. Its easy to find only 10 min walk from town

I recommend only to this on a windstill and sunny day. As you have no shelter from wind and rain. The view on top is beautiful. There is a small playground on top of the hill, next to the restaurant.

We went on the Sesselbahn around Easter time. It was good fun - a bit heart-stopping if you are no good with heights like me but you get spectacular views of the Rhine. Warning - it is cold when the wind blows!

Older style chairlift with great views up and down the Rhine valley. The Woods ant the top of the hill were peaceful and beautiful. Can be a little windy so bring extra clothing.

This open chair lift takes you to the top for fantastic views of the Rhine where it takes a nearly 360° turn. There are two small restaurants at the top where you can sample the excellent local wines as you savor the views of vineyards and the river below. At certain angles the river looks divided as if it is... More

We took the train to Boppard, then walked to the north end of town to the Sessellift. It would be nice if there were more signs to it. A couple of other people asked us if they were going the right way. All I knew was that it was on the north end. IT was easy to find. The trip... More

It was strongly recomended to go up with a cable car for observation. the cable car completely open. Swaying in the wind, and those who do not fear from heights, will fear. Was the nightmare of my life. 20 minutes going up, didn't look at the landscape because had terrible anxiety. Top observation as worth it but try to find... More
