I had to chuckle when Trip Advisor asked if the Drosselgasse is a "hidden gem." Arguably the best known street in Germany, the Drosselgasse is a narrow long corridor of restaurants, bars, shopping and wall to wall tourists. That said, the street is "postcard Germany"...More

Something you need to do in Rudesheim. Noisy bars and restaurants where you can spend good time when you're with a group.

A street full of bars. There is a range of beers available. Some bars have entertainment others you just sit and drink. A jolly place designed to take money off of tourists.

Rudescheim is a popular stop for the river boats on the Rhine. It has a classic coffee and schnaps drink. The village is small and easily walked. It is clearly tourist oriented. Nonetheless, it is a cute village.

We stopped by Drosselgasse on our way to the Rhine from the Frankfurt Airport and found it to be typically touristy but overall a fun place for a short visit, a meal and/or wine tasting. One encounters the typical array of souvenir shops as well...More

Enjoyed walking in this area and seeing all of the great restaurants and shopping in the area. There's a lovely glockenspeil clock that has the dancers that come out when the clock strikes the hour.
