Cable Cars in Rüdesheim

A few meters away from the Drosselgasse and the Museum for Mechanical Music Instrumets is the Rüdesheim cable car valley station. From there we take a cable car up the hill to the Niederwald - a forest with a great view down to the Rhine valley. Also on top of the hill are the statue "Germania" and an eagle enclosure.

What a beatiful view. A great place to take photos.
They look like a tight fit for two people.
