A great way to get to the top of the mountain above Boppard with superb views over the Rhine and the Bopparder Hamm. Restaurant at the top is OK, but not as cheap as in town - only to be expected. Superb views coming down...More

This is a very relaxing open chair lift, similar to the way ski lifts used to be. It's about 20 minutes in each direction, and the lift moves very slowly, so the greatest danger is to fall asleep and slip out of the chair under...More

A lovely way to get a Birds eye view of Boppard. Highly recommended. We only took it up and did a 15-20km hike ending to a nearby city. Paths were very well marked once you reach the top. A great way to spend the day!

The chair lift is a twenty minute ride to overlooks and two restaurants above the Rhine. The woods are quite lovely and there are some good trails. Watch out for mountain bikes.

The Sesselbahn provides phenomenal views over the Rhine as you head up to the top - a perfect opportunity for some panoramic shots! The restaurants at the top are ideal to stop off for a drink (and sit and enjoy the views!) before either heading...More

However, I was told it will be permanently closing after this season by our hotel. We didn't go on the Sesselbahn this time, but did many years ago to see the Vierseenblick, a real must. Great hiking to go to Hotel Jakobsberg for lunch.

Very enjoyable even if heights are not your thing - just don't look down! Views over the vineyards are really lovely and when you get near the top, you can see all over the Rhine which is very special. For those who feel so inclined,...More

As a family we have ascended with chairlift several times. The latest jaunt was a little scary as the wind was rather strong. It takes approximately 20.mins to reach the summit where there are a couple of restaurants and some terrific views. There are some...More

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
