The Drosselgasse is the main tourist trap in Ruedesheim - busy full of bars and eateries with a few gift shops thrown in for good measure. It was very busy when visited on a warm July afternoon. It would be a shame to visit Ruedsheim and not enjoy a coffee , beer or bite to eat in this place (... More

Definitely worth visiting and today during the Rudesheim Wine Festival (second week in August) It was full of tables and chairs and laughing jovial Germans all busily singing along to the band. The place is full of restaurants, tourist shops and interesting things.

The 'must do' street in Rudesheim. Lots of restaurants, bars, shops. Very quaint and narrow, with a great ambience

A little tacky but good fun. A few restaurants most playing traditional German music and some with dancing, a few shops selling typical tourist nic nacs

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
