We enjoyed the ride very much and especially the view from the top which is a short walk from the top station. Luckily, we bought tickets up and down. Later we saw people with inappropriate footwear slowly making their way own the steep trail.

If nervous of highs, get a taxi from the station. But the views and fruit wines at the top are well worth the trip. The view of Boppard coming down on the Sesselbahn is a wonderful sight.

Took a river boat from Rudesheim up to Boppard; stayed in town overnight then up the Sesselbahn the next morning. An absolutely fabulous way to see the Rhein from ``up top`. Enjoyed watching the kids at the bike park too!

It's a short walk from the town to the sesselbahn station. It takes about 20 minutes to go up to the hill station. You need to like heights though...from there you can choose from a variety of walks, or spend some time in one of...More

Looks like a beautiful place from these pictures. Please help the owners find their lost SD card that was found in Nova Scotia today. There are more pics that provide info from 2004

It is cash only and think it was about 15 euros for both of us. We luckily had other cash on hand to buy a cash only lunch at the top at a restaurant a short walk away. The food was good and we would have had dessert if we... More

About a kilometre, it's a pleasant 15 minute walk along the river. Just walk west along the riverfront from the hotels and cross the road. You will see the chairlift going up as you approach so just follow to its base.
