Very friendly staff here. Take a calming and relaxing ride with splendid views over the Rhine and the surroundings overlooking the vinyards. We definitely recommend to buy the round tour tickets using the chairlifts from and to Assmanshausen and Rudesheim. The round trip also includes visiting the beautiful Rheinstein castle by a boat trip along the Rhine. Really enjoyable for... More

We went up the sesselbahn from Rüdesheim, visited the Niederwalddenkmal, and walked for about 30 minutes to the chairlift. Near the lift was a fenced area with a few deer. Some middle school kids were feeding the deer with food from a vending machine. Trip down on the chairlift was nice. We heard a cuckoo bird as we went down.... More

One of my local cousins did an excellent job of providing a tour of this area. So for those of you that like to walk take the Seilbahn from Rudesheim up to this statue then walk on the paths on top of the hill and take the other Seilbahn down to Assmannhausen and then the ferry back to Rudesheim. I... More

We took the Assmannshausen Chairlift to Jaeger Schloss, took a pleasant 1.5 Km walk to the Niederwald Denkmal for nice views of the Rhine river and then took the cable car down to the center of Ruedeshreim. A nice experience, for all 6 of us. The cable lifts run from 10 AM to 6 PM. Later we all took the... More

After visiting the Niederwald Monument we walked along the road to the chairlift down to Assmannshausen......OMG the chairlift appears to be rather gentle moving along at a steady pace through the trees..........then......you suddenly come to the top of the descent......panic, panic, white knuckles, feeling extremely nervous, yet awe struck with the unbelievable views, whilst gripping the bar for dear life,...

After walking 21km of the Rheinsteig taking the chairlift down to Assmannshausen was a joy. The staff both ends were very helpful when getting on and off especially with a backpack and tired legs. Look forward to going up next time we continue the Rheinsteig.
