We arrived in Rudesheim late in the day and it was only for a relatively quick stopover on our Rhine River cruise. We were able to spend a couple of hours strolling the main street and the cobblestone side streets though and I'm glad we had that chance. Even though most things were closed and as it was a few...

Loved all the winding little narrow cobblestone streets and paths, highlighted by the Christmas market and each building beautifully decorated and lit up for the holidays. Lovely shops and outdoor stands to have something to eat and drink hot gluhwein. Very quaint and welcoming.

Adorable little city on the Rhine river. Fabulous lights and decorations for Christmas. Many many vendor booths with unique items. Delicious glüe wein standup drink tables with real lighted Christmas trees as centerpieces and chocolates. Rabbit live Christmas village. Carousel. Very pretty!

Visited friends in the area. It is a tourist place, still worth the short walk on this beautiful narrow streets. The buildings and restaurants are nice and inviting. Would like to spend a summer evening there someday.

An interesting little alley, with shops and a chiming clock, but its nothing exceptional. The whole town is pleasant, surrounded by vineyards which make a lovely walk around.

It is a 144m long marrow streets full of restaurants and souvenir shops. Actually it is quite short, we were there on a Sunday, shops still open and the street full of people. Quite hard to find a place to eat especially in some popular restaurants, we ended up eating at our hotel restaurant.

What is all the fuss about? A lively street full of bars and touristic shops, also some barrel accommodation on offer. There are many places to try the famous Rudesheim coffee. Historical significance, but blink and you won't miss it.

I did a bit of window shopping but what shopping I actually was on a different street. Places to eat and get a drink. Spend as little or as much time as you want here.

......I worked as an English guide at the Asbach Brandy Distillery for six months. Obviously I can't recommend any particular bar or restaurant after 44 years - even if I could remember them (!!) but the street itself was/is (hopefully) a magical place of fun. The challenge amongst us English workers was to go down one side and back up... More

This is a super cute little street. We went during the Christmas market so there were probably more people than usual. There are quite a few shops that are worthy if a visit.
