Ah yes, the Drosselgasse, a short, narrow street filled with eateries and souvenir shops. And of course filled with Tourists

I've recently visited Beale St in Memphis and Bourbon St in New Orleans - both streets famous for music and drink - the Drosselgasse is a small German version which is definitely in the same league. We took a drink in a courtyard where there was an entertainer. Great fun!.

The selection of bars, music and drinks has to be tried to be believed - no trip would be complete without sampling a Rudesheim Coffee which is made with the local Asbach brandy - fantastic anytime day, evening or night. All sorts of music from Brass Oompah, German Folk to Irish folk and everything in between

This small street is described as a main tourist attraction in Rudesheim. In my opinion it is just a typical tourist street full of bars selling overpriced food and a few tacky shops selling overpriced goods. Well worth a walk through and nothing else!!

Very touristic but a few of the Coffee houses are pleasant to visit. This narrow street is for pedestrians only. When you walk down to the river it is probably as good as any other street. Don't plan a special trip just to go to this Narrow street.

This is a very picturesque narrow street devoted to Rhine wine; it has become a tourist favourite and with good reason.

Even though this place is very touristic it's very interesting to visit. Lots of nice shops, good restaurants, lovely cafes and historical buildings.

This narrow and characterful shopping street in the middle of the river front at Rudesheim is a must for every visitor. We sampled the famous Asbach brandy coffee and apfel strudle here and it was a treat.

This alley brings you back to the old days of food and festivity. There are so many shops to browse through and many historic buildings to see.
