The figure of Germania adorned with imperial crown and sword stands on the 38-metre tall Niederwald Monument keeping watch over the vineyards of Rüdesheim and the River Rhine.

Designed by the Dresden sculptor Johannes Schilling, the monument was completed in 1883 and symbolises the re-establishment of the German Empire following the Franco-Prussian War in 1870 / 71. The location offers some of the best panoramic views over the Rhine and Nahe valleys.
