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.

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.

The street itself is very pretty. Like a Brother's Grimm Fairy Tale. It is full of souvenir shops selling cheap gifts - more expensive than in Frankfurt. We visited early in the morning so it was quiet. I can imagine it gets busy later in the day. The shop assistants and owners are so rude. One man shouted at my... More

A narrow pedestrian street that overflows with wines and oom-pah-pah tunes any hour of the day. It was a delightful place to visit

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.
