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.

Lovely architecture, but in general, a huge tourist trap! You can find everything you want though, so it's very convenient for tourists. It can get very crowded and it's a narrow street, so off-season is a great time to visit.

I's a nice short walk but not recommended when you have limited mobility it's rather steep but pleasant with all the winebars and life music in the evening.

Here's why. This is a very cool place to walk around, shop, eat. You WILL feel like you are in Germany. We all had a blast and didn't want to leave. Tiny streets that are very cool. Stop and enjoy a German beer. AWESOME!

Difficult to miss this as there's a continuous stream of tourists ambling up and down the Drosselgasse. From early evening the sounds of live traditional German music drifts from a number of the bars and restaurants. Too many shops selling cheap and nasty souveniers for my liking, but if people weren't buying them they wouldn't be there I guess.
