There are a lot of quirky shops here and the traditional tourist traps but it is unique and we did find the gelato to be excellent. It's one of the must sees if you're in town.

Its a little touristy but well worth the visit. Beer gardens with tradition music, lovely wine bars and resturants. Would have loved to have eaten at all of them. The food smelt beautiful. Fantastic atmosphere.

The cobblestones are adorable. There is live music in some of the restaurants. Every merchant spoke English. Lovely and peaceful street to spend an afternoon.

Me and my husband went trough the Drossrlgasse street on our way to the cable car to see the Niederwald Monument. This is a tiny street but a very lovely place with lots of restaurants and shops on a stone road. Since it was the summer all restaurants were full of flower pots and it was just like walking through... More

Rudesheim is a village on the Rhine River of 3000 people with 10 million annual visitors. I'll bet nearly every single one visits the famed Drosselgasse which is a tiny, old world-style lane 144 meters long filled with open air cafes, bars and restaurants, and gazillions of tourists. You hear music all the way up and down. It is undeniably... More

Yes it could be crowded yes it's a bit touristy but oh my goodness just do it. There are great restaurants and cute little shops and it must be done at least once in a lifetime ! Itonly takes a few minutes to stroll down it!

If you came to Ruedesheim and didn't walk down it, past all the wine bars and souvenir type shops, and didn't spend a euro, congratulations. It's famous, trades on its name and most people seem to give in. Out of season, I'm sure it's a very pleasant place to meander backwards and forwards along. In June, July, August time though,...

We were here a couple of years ago and were disappointed. Things have not changed and although all the River Cruise companies say visit the street, a thirty minute stroll is long enough! We strolled through just before 10.00 and as there was very few other people it was far better than being pushed and shoved by the crowds.

Yes, its a nice street but with the same restaurants and shops throughout.,try walking down the streets on either side. Much more intriguing and authentic! Just a hundred yards takes you out odmthentourist stuff and into a much nicer space.
