We used the Seilbahn from Rüdesheim walked through the Neiderwald and took the Seilbahn to Assmannshausen for lunch. Very scenic and well recommended

Great outing with my daughter. The views of the vineyards and the river were great. We both had a great time and would highly recommend. So much to see, I would have ridden it twice.

This is certainly a great experience. The quiet and peace that you feel as you ride through the forest with a view of the Rhine river is enchanting. Its worth the time and the money for a few minutes of silence and peace.

Something really special if this is your first ski lift ride! Since we do not have something similar in South Africa, this was the highlight of our trip to Europe. Stunning little town also.

We used die Sesselbahn for a downhill ride. The ride took about 15-20 minutes. Not suitable for small children and people with fear of height. Nice view on the river Rhein. Avoid if windy or raining. Nice experience but not breathtaking.

super intermezzo to see something different. nice walk through the top of the mountain forest. parking is a bit difficult. closes at 1730hrs(last trip) - try to be there before 1500hrs to get the maximum out of your trip.

The chairlift is soo calming and relaxing with splendid views over the Rhine and the surroundings with all the vinyards. We definitely recommend to buy the round tour using the chairlifts from and to Assmanshausen and Rudesheim. The round trip also includes visiting the beautiful...More

The Chairlift/Sesselbahn leaves from near center of Assmannshausen, just climb a couple of flights of stairs from Niederwald Strasse. Great views of the valley and vineyards up and the Rhine Valley down.
