I have to say I was looking forward to spending more time walking up the Drosselgasse, well it took all of one minute to do so, it was a much shorter distance than I had anticipated, having said that there are lots of bars and restaurants where you can get top quality food and excellent wine.

This adorable alley served up all I could desire in Germany: cuckoo clocks, flowers, church bells, and lots of great little restaurants beckoning me in for a glass of local Riesling or a cold bier. Be sure to try the rudeshemer kaffee!

Was on a river cruise and decided to have dinner at a small restaurant along Drosselgasse. Oh what fun. Music. Sauerbraten Wine Beer. The street is narrow and that's good because no cars. However, if you are physically challenged, it make be difficult for you to navigate. But if you are able,take a stroll. You'll love the feel of old... More

A classic, old fashioned German street/alley with shops and wine tasting along the way. When you are in Ruedesheim, you have to make sure to stroll down the Drosselgasse.

The Drosselgasse should definitely be experienced by night when you're in Rudesheim and even better, if you can experience it when the Christmas Market Stalls are open, then it's an even better atmosphere, as everywhere is bustling. All of the bars and eateries are fabulous - it's so much fun spending an evening here. The International bar is usually quite... More

Drosselgasse is without doubt very pretty and colourful with lots of picturesque places to photograph. We visited on a very busy Saturday afternoon during the Rhine in Flames event. Many places to eat and drink. Lots of the pubs had outdoor seating or courtyards with colourful flowers and waitresses dressed in traditional olde world clothing. Visiting in the daylight was...

Not sure why this narrow street is touted as a tourist attraction. Yes there are some nice-looking bars and restaurants, but nothing extra special. we walked from one end of this narrow, crowded lane to the other and saw nothing that stood out.

This is the world famous drinking alley and the place to be seen in Rüdesheim, it is ok I guess if you want to pay a little over the odds to be seen in the right place, or carrying the right bag.. There is a selection of wine shops and restaurants for you to choose from, some with live music.... More

Ruedesheim is a must for any visitor to the area, the Drosselgasse is a very small street where you can get anything German you want, many restaraunts, and wine tasting around, lots of music and fun.
