The 29er Memorial on the Rheinbrohler Ley is a supra-regional memorial for all victims of war, terror and violence.

It was founded between 1931 and 1933 by the Regimental Association of the 3rd Rhine. Inf Regiment No. 29 von Horn was built as a replacement resting place for the 3,540 comrades who fell in World War I.

The chapel can be reached directly via the Rheinsteig and the Rheinhöhenweg and from here you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views on the German Rhine. It is sponsored by the Neuwied district, the Bad Hönningen community and the Rheinbrohl local community.
Inside there is the large, nationally known relief of the four apocalyptic horsemen from the Revelation of John, like the cenotaph itself, a work by Professor Carl Burger from Mayen.
The association of former 29ers and supporters of the memorial e.V., based in Rheinbrohl, maintains the memorial and the surrounding facilities with its 400 supporting members and offers free guided tours upon request.
