Seilbahn Rudesheim

Reviewed By Lynn D - Cambridge, United Kingdom

I just loved this trip, I'm not a cable car lover, but this didn't feel at all scary or too high. The cars are open and almost bucket like shaped. The views were amazing and it was such a lovely relaxing journey up to the monument.
Probably ot worth it if the weather is poor though, we were lucky and had great weather, so the views of the Rhine were amazing. 8€ for a return journey was excellent value.

Rheinstein Castle

"Burg Rheinstein" is nowadays a interesting museum with a long history. There is a restaurant for visitors and if you'd like to a special experience - there two beautiful apartments which can be booked for a overnight stay. The castle "Burg Rheinstein" is located approx. 5 kilometers (approx. 3 miles) westward of Bingen, down the river Rhine, at the south entrance of the UNESCO Cultural Heritage of the Upper Middle-Rhine Valley ("Oberes Mittelrheintal"), face to face with the village of Assmannshausen. The castle was the symbol of the castle-reconstruction period in the 19th century, the so-called Romanticism, because of its impressive location, and also its eventful history had many highlights.

I recently visited Burg Rheinstein with Stan from Privatour.com. The walk up is a good workout but the castle is well worth it. A family purchased it in the 70s and worked hard to restore it. They did an amazing job with the structure and the contents. They do have rooms that can be rented as well but the castle is special just to visit. Stan was a great guide and really shared with me the history of the castle. I would've bought a book about it if I had not had Stan to talk me through it. There are some nice hikes in the area to and the views are really good.

St. Jakobus

Reviewed By Xanerin - Alice Springs, Australia

On the far right hand side of the Marketplatz is the St Jakobus catholic parish church which has been reconstructed after almost entirely destroyed in 1944. The church has been reconstructed in a very simple fashion with only the tower chapel, middle altar and gravestones surviving the attack. Interesting.

Burg Klopp

Reviewed By 1trekky - Carlsbad, California

The castle stands on the hill, the site of old Roman fortification.
Built in 13th century and along with castle Ehrenfels and Mouse Tower, was a toll collecting station on the river trade. Soon the castle was destroyed and the ruin was sold and rebuilt partially.
In 1875 a new Gothic style castle was built. Now, the only remnants of the Medieval castle are parts of the wall walk and the battlements tower.

Niederwald Chairlift Assmannshausen on the Rhine

Reviewed By bigtyke - greeley, CO

We went up the sesselbahn from Rüdesheim, visited the Niederwalddenkmal, and walked for about 30 minutes to the chairlift. Near the lift was a fenced area with a few deer. Some middle school kids were feeding the deer with food from a vending machine. Trip down on the chairlift was nice. We heard a cuckoo bird as we went down. Great views of Rhine

Benedictine Abbey of St. Hildegard

Reviewed By 101jumper - Kansas City, Missouri

Located just a short drive from both Wiesbaden and Rudeshiem, the Benedictine Abbey of St. Hildegarged (Abtei St. Hildegard in German) is a peaceful refuge from the tourist crowds along the Rhine. You may visit the beautiful church, learn from the multi-language information room, do a bit of shopping (include wine buying) or simply take in the beauty of the Rhine from a high vantage point. The Abbey has a small cafe for those seeking refreshment. Visitors please take note - this is a working religious institution run by dedicated Sisters. Please be respectful of them and their "off limits" areas.

The crane can be visited inside as part of a special tour (should be reserved in advance). You can then experience the work of the crane handlers in former times, turning the big wheels.

Museum am Strom - Hildegard von Bingen

Directly at the Gateway to the UNESCO World-Heritage "Mittelrheintal" (Central Rheine Valley), the Museum am Strom invites visitors to experience fascinating Encounters with 2000 years on the river Rhine. Permanent and Special Exhibitions about Hildegard of Bingen, Rhine Romanticism, Roman Age and town history present themselves in the magnificent Setting of the "Binger Loch" in the historic power plant of 1898. On the doorstep, the "Hildegarden" and the attractions of the "Kulturufer Bingen" make more discoveries possible ...

Reviewed By msgtp - Rapid City, South Dakota

A lot of information well presented about the visionary woman (and Saint) - easily found on the Rhein Promenade upriver from the train station.
Information is not limited to St. Hildegard but also some fascinating Roman surgical instruments (with their uses), and some historical information around the establishment of the town.
Worth a visit if in the area.
