I tried the chairlift 2 days ago in the evening. Although somewhat scary, it's a really fun and exciting way to watch Boppard and Rhine fall away below you. The viewing points are just 5 and 10 mins away from the lifts and the last...More

The chair lift is a bit scary as any breeze rocks the chairs and you are a long way from the ground but it is exciting. Once you reach the top the views are spectacular and there are lovely woodland walks along the hill crest....More

Nice, easy ride up to the top. Maybe 5€ for adults and 3for the kids. Moves pretty slow and only 2 per cart. Nothing terribly exciting about the ride and there are some other cable cars on the Rhine with better views (i.e., Rudesheim and...More

A very quite and peaceful experience travelling on the chairlift looking out over the Rhine river on one side and beautiful woodland on the other. At the top you can walk through the woods to see the fantastic view of the huge curve of the...More

This chair lift gives you a 20 minute ride up to the top of the mountain where there is a restaurant where you can enjoy views of Boppard and the Rhine Bend whilst enjoying a drink or a meal.

I have taken this chair lift before, however, not on this trip. It is an older, pretty slow, chair lift, like a ski lift. I was scared going up...coming down is better as you have something to focus on, which is the spectacular view from...More

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

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.
