The Niederwald Monument with its statue of "Germania" was built in the years from 1877 to 1883.
The monument was constructed to commemorate the foundation of the German Empire after the end of Franco-Prussian War. The first stone was laid on September 16, 1871, by Wilhelm I.
On completion of the Monument, it was estimated to cost one million gold marks.
Our view of the Monument was restricted, as it was being renovated, even so, it is a huge and impressive Monument!
There has always been an easy way to reach here, first, by rack Railway and nowday's, this has been replaced by the Gondola.
Hard for me to believe over 30 million people from all over the world have used the Gondola's since 1954.
