The easist way to get up to or down from the Neiuderwold above Ruedesheim is to use the gondala ride which travels over the vines and provides great views. Very popular when we visited on a sunny Sunday with long queues in Ruedesheim.

This cable car looks very old and looks basically like a bucket on a stick! It is open at the sides which we thought was great as it didn't get hot and was great for photo's. The "buckets" are small taking two adults comfortably although...More

The seilbahn was open late (until 11pm) on our first day in Germany. Spectacular views of the vineyards, bits of the Rhine and at top a short walk to the Germania sculpture. Kids (12 and 17) loved this activity.

We bought Ring tickets (cable, lift and return by ship) and can recommend everybody to do it. Nothing spectacular but nice and relaxing. Magnificent views on the vineyards, the towns of Bingen, Rüdesheim and Assmannshausen. Very friendly people as well and paid only 15,- p.p.

Chairlifts usually avoid these but this one was charming, not too high just skimming along lifting gently above the vines. Scenery very beautiful with township below and curving river. A lovely experience and I would return. Only two seats, Small but comfy. Staff helpful.

I'm not the greatest for chairlifts across huge alpine chasms, but this one was as if tailor-made for me! It is, in fact, a modest chair-lift that brings you up a hill (not a mountain) a few metres above luscious vineyards. I felt that if...More

Very enjoyable, even for someone like me who is usually scared of hights, especially chairlifts and such. But in this one you are never very hight above the ground. And the views are really worth it.

It was wonderful to ride this ropeway over the vineyards, enjoying views of the Rhine River and of Rudesheim below. Tickets were easy to buy and there were no crowds, so we pretty much hopped on when we wanted to. It was tempting to walk...More

Great views over the Rhine River await on the Seilbahn ride from the town to the top of the hill. This is a fun experience, and in cooler times of the year, it would be advisable to wear a couple of layers. The views at...More
