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.

Probably the most iconic street in all of Germany, the Drosselgasse did not disappoint. You could spend hours exploring all of the shops, bars and entertainment the street has to offer and still not capture it. This was one of our highlights in Germany!

Brilliant atmosphere, surprisingly open on New Years Day (afternoon) Lots of lovely shops, cafes & restaurants. A must to try is a Rudesheimer Coffee.

I was there because it was posted originally on the Christmas market website that the market would be opened on Nov 21. When I arrived, I found that they were still setting up the stall and the date on the website was changed to Nov 24, I was a little disappointed. The town is small and walking around can be... More
