Rüdesheim is located in the heart of the Rhine Valley at the southern entrance to the Lorelei Valley. It is home to the world-renowned Drösselgasse - a street lined with traditional pubs and wine cellars - and is one of the area's most popular wine towns. Half-timbered medieval houses, narrow streets and old inns give Rüdesheim the flavour of the Middle Ages.
Visitors to the town may wish to see the 9th-century Bromserburg, the oldest castle on the Rhine, or Siegfried's Mechanical Music Museum, with one of the largest collections of self-playing instruments. From Rüdesheim you can take the town's cable car up over the vineyards for terrific views of the region.
