Only one pub open at end of January. We were one of 2 couples. This was the world famous drosselgasse - a Mecca for beer lovers if a bit touristy. However absolutely not in January. The stop in Rudesheim was a waste of money and effort at this time of year. Disappointed.

This town is really a TOURIST town. It is what tourist "think" Germany is like. There are wine shops, beer gardens, bratwurst, ompa music...... In courtyard of the Hotel Lindenwirt the food is really good. The entertainment is GREAT. They have a guy named Dieter who can play anything! We have eaten here several times. It is a fun place...

This is a quaint little street in Rudesheim that is worth walking down. We also found a place to get a Rudesheim coffee while there (which was great). This isn't something that will take too long, but worth your time to find for a quick stroll. However, visiting Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett, which is right there, is another great thing to... More

This is Rudesheim's most famous street. When I was there it was crowded with people visiting the Christmas market, the wine bars, cafe's and restaurants. This street also has many shops that sell their famous locally sparkled distilled brandies and sparkling SEKT and their famous Riesling wines. This is a famous wine town with this street packed with so many... More

What a pity ! I came down this delightful boozer lined alley before the thirst was upon me ! Seriously,I can imagine it being great fun if treated in moderation and a great 'crac'h' with a bunch of good friends.

The alley, along with other little allies and streets, are really unique and create a whole section of picturesque buildings. Nice taverns and shops.

Spent a few days In Rudesheim in July and really enjoyed my stay. Being a tourist attraction it can get busy (In the words of Yogi Berra "Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded") that being said I really enjoyed it. Outside seats, grab a Coffee or a wine. Live entertainment at certain places at night which consisted of traditional... More

First time back here in years. Still hasn't lost its charm and atmosphere. Although the Christmas market had just ended still nice to be there. A must in spring and summer

We would not miss that lane. Rhine River Tours take his friends all the time to stroll up and down Drosselgasse. most of the time we will enjoy a delicious ice cream.

Cute walk in the small alley. You can spend like 3 hour in this small town. But with car we prefer to explore other small city along Rhein. Personally I feel this town is getting too touristy, all the shops looks similar and you can approach by sales often
