Historic Rudesheim am Rhine - a Germany must!

Lying at the foot of the Neiderwald, on the approach of the Lorelei, on the banks of the Rhine; a stop or overnight in Rudesheim is a must for any travelers to the Rhine area of Germany. Though a year-round tourist destination, Rudesheim maintains it's quaint and quintessential German feeling. Stroll along quaint cobble stoned Drosselgasse, discover the town's nook and cranny's and stop for a gelato overlooking the beautiful Rhine River. The feeling of Rudesheim is relaxing. Visit and relax.

Must Do's:

Georg Bruer: Sample local wine and champagne at Georg Bruer. The Bruer family cultivates over 33 hectacres of vineyards in Rudesheim and the surrounding areas. We recommend this to be your first stop in Rudesheim.

Middle Ages Torture Museum: Come and view the instruments used for torture in the middle ages. Learn about the methods of torture, witches, funeral piles, witch-hunts, witchcraft, the Inquisition, and the Medieval punishments.

Shopping: You will find a host of German craft shops in Rudesheim. You can be assured to find souvenirs of your time in Germany.

Cruise on the Rhine: If the weather is fine, there is nothing better than to take a cruise on the Rhine. You will see green mountainsides dotted with castle ruins along the entire Rhine.

Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett: Music-lovers and history buffs will delight in the collection at this wonderful museum. Visitors will find phonographs, music boxes, player pianos and more.

Niederwald Monument: This majestic statue, over 30 feet tall, sits atop Rüdesheim's National Monument. The ride up and the view is amazing!

Rheingau Wine Museum Broemserburg Castle: This medieval castle now serves as a museum of wine and local history.

Stroll the Drosselgasse: Less than 500 feet long, Drosselgasse is a narrow, pub-lined lane, which is abuzz with music and merrymaking from noon until well past midnight every day from Easter through October.

Benedictine Abbey of St. Hildegard: A very lovely abbey with nuns living here and running it. There is also a shop were you can buy things what are made here. The views you have from here are stunning.

Dinner at the Rudesheimer Schloss: Breuer's Rüdesheimer Schloss's restaurant serves food from the Hesse region. A variety of wines from the hotel's own winery can be tasted and purchased. In the summer, you are lucky to eat in the courtyard famous for it's glockenspiel. Live music plays daily. The food is fabulous and the atmosphere is amazing!

Rudesheim am Rhine is a must for any travelers to Germany, especially if you are visiting the Rhine region. It is an easy day trip from Frankfurt. But, Rudesheim is also a great base for exploring the Rhine region. We recommend staying at Bruer's Rudesheimer Schloss. The atmosphere is amazing!
