We got into town later than expected (who would have thought German trains ran late?), and walked up this street looking for somewhere to eat. Really nothing but a street full of shops, restaurants, and lots of lot music.

Talk about a wonderful Bavarian shopping and restaurant street. Very quaint and very busy with tourists and it is a must see spot for the architectural details of the buildings. Some of my pictures show carved wooden shutters on a restaurant - very nice!!! Another interesting thing to see (or hear) are the carillon bells.

The visit to Drosselgasse is always a happening. It you get there in the afternoon the walking traffic is very conjested. You listen to everyone talking and you realize that people are there from all over the world. It is crowded and warm, particularly on a 75 degree day. The alley is small so you have to squeeze by the... More

This is the main drag in Ruedesheim. It is chock full of souvenir shops, ice cream stalls, restaurants,vinoteks and TOURISTS!Accordion music blares from every direction. I think this typifies what the world thinks Germany is like. It isn't, this is not slice of life Germany, but it is great fun. Soak it up, have a Ruedesheimer coffee, get an ice... More

This is Rudesheim's historic center; there is much to do, see, taste, and experience ... all right here. The music box factory store is in this general area and that is a very strong draw for tour groups. When we finished touring the Niederwald Monument, and walked back down the hill into town, it was hard to resist popping in... More

If you like crowds, this the place for you. Bus after bus loads of people create a sea of humanity with all the ridiculous tourist shops selling crap made in China.

A most picturesque street running from the main part of the town of Rudesheim down to the Rhine. Mainly restaurants and tourist souvenir shops, but very pretty and with some lovely architecture. Great for a stroll, a beer (or two) and some people watching

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
