Arguably the most famous attraction in Rudesheim, Drosselgasse is a 144-metre cobbled street that winds its way through the winemaking town.
Populated by timber-framed houses garlanded with vines, as well as taverns, souvenir shops, restaurants, and bars, Drosselgasse is often described as the “merriest street in the world”.
Each and every year, around three million people make their way here to experience the magical atmosphere and live music. Drosselgasse also offers traditional culinary delights as well as the region’s world-renowned local wines.
And Drosselgasse is steeped in tradition. First appearing in records in the 15th century, the street was originally the area where the Rhine boatmen would find board and lodgings, and in 18th and 19th centuries, inns and wine taverns began moving into the area.
