A very nice little rustic street in the heart of Rüdesheim. I loved every moment and took a lot of photos.

The street is quite lively. Traditional German music was played as well as an ABBA tribute band. A short street.

This town is a classic on the Rhine and is perfect for a short break - or longer of course. Walk the full length of the Drosselgasse which is a very narrow street full of shops and places to eat. Apparently the legend goes that the street is so narrow you can never fall over even if you have had... More

I can see some appeal of this narrow little street which does have some lovely architecture. Having said that, it is like a Disneyland Germania - all the stereotypes about Germany you can think of thrown into one small town; there are also cheap tourist shops, a karaoke bar blasting music onto the street when we visited in the middle...

Tack is the main merchandise on sale here - almost anything in a snowstorm available! Nothing is cheap. Some pretty cheeky nicknacks too! There is a certain dated atmosphere about the place with cafés serving Wurst in every shape and cuisine, beer and the like. The musical ambiance is one of um pah pah par excellence! A total dated cliché... More

Beautiful architecture with lots of history and welcoming bars/restaurants serving good food and drink and usually with live music to accompany it. Slightly pricier than other places in Rudesheim, but a must do! We ate this night at the Rudesheimer Hof and our meal was excellent, but marred by a party and their entertainments crew from a Viking Cruise who... More

This little street with its quaint buildings has many shop and restaurants that cater for the enormous number of tourists who come to lovely Rudesheim by rail, river and road. naturally it can become very crowded.

It is worth a walk along. Although you have to avoid all the other tourists but the architecture is worth the hustle and bustle. Only annoying thing Is trying to get a photo with you on it is virtually impossible.
