Lovely place to visit at night. Lots of music, singers, bands etc. Some great entertainment. Some buildings all lit up, it's like Christmas!

We spent two weeks touring Germany ansd I think this was the most commercialized town and the Drosselgasse the most commercialized street. It certainly is cute, but it is a haven for tourists who want to see some cartoon-like image of what they think Germany is about. If you want to get the real flavor, try some towns like Rothenburg obT, Dinkelsbuehl, etc., which don't pretend to be cute - but are!

Lots of little shops and bars often with live music. If the weather is fine great to just sit our and relax.
Can get very crowded

I grew up in Germany and visited the Drosselgasse as a child with my parents several times, also went with my husband during our engagement trip in the 80s. This was my first time back since 1989. Either I had overly rosy memories, or the place completely deteriorated. I was really disappointed--what a sad tourist trap. Seriously, the German pavillion at Epcot Disney World is more authentic. All of the restaurants looked like a collection of German stereotypes thrown together for foreign tourists. Absolutely avoid!
(If you must get souvenirs here, we got a few trinkets for the kids at Peter Rehwald Praesente, and the staff there was very friendly)

The local residents and shop keepers are extremely rude. Guess they are trying to live up to the town's name Rudesheim. The experience was good but I do not want to have to visit there again. Tourists, tourists, tourists. All they are after is your cash. Many won,t take credit cards and clearly spell out C-A-S-H
