Located on the Rhine River, Rüdesheim is the chief center of Rhine winemaking. The famed Drosselgasse, a tavern-lined cobblestone street, attracts locals and international visitors alike. Half-timbered medieval houses, narrow streets and old inns give the town the flavor of the Middle Ages. You will see the 9th-century Bromserburg, the oldest castle on the Rhine, and Siegfried’s Mechanical Music Museum, which houses one of the world’s largest collections of self-playing instruments.
A highlight of your tour in Rüdesheim is the ride in a cable car up to the Germania monument. The awe-inspiring panoramic views over Rüdesheim’s old town and the shimmering waters of the Rhine dotted with green isles make the smooth glide over the vineyards a very special and memorable experience.
