RUDESHEIM – Seilbahn

In order to do justice to the numerous visitors who wanted to see the Niederwalddenkmal in Rüdesheim, a rack railway was built in 1884. This was the forerunner of today’s cable-car, which transported the visitors through the vineyards to the monument. The rack railway was replaced by the cable-car in 1954. Since then, more than 20 million people from all over the world have glided in 2-person cars over the vines on their way to the Niederwald Monument.
