    Beside the Rhine

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Near where the cruise ships moor in Rüdesheim is a small park, and we spotted a few wooden kiosks set up there which seemed to be serving food and drink. When we went to investigate after dinner one evening we saw that one sold local wines. Tables and chairs were set up under the trees and it seemed a popular spot with both locals and visitors. We ordered a couple of glasses, asking for the driest white available, which proved to be a Riesling and not very dry, but pleasant enough. The wine seemed expensive at first, at €8 a glass, but then we realised that €3 of this price was a deposit on the glass which would be reimbursed when we returned these.

    We chose a couple of chairs nearer to the river. It had been a very hot day but there was a cool breeze by now and it was a really lovely spot in which to enjoy a drink. As we sat there it started to get dark, and the chapel on the opposite hillside, the Rochuskapelle, was beautifully floodlit (see photos 2 and 3). Local families settled nearby, the children playing and adults gossiping, and a few other couples from the various ships sat at some of the other tables. The night lights twinkled, the air cooled some more and the view was magical – a wonderful way to end the day.

    Dress Code: Come as you are – you’ll be sitting on garden chairs in a park, after all!

    Drosselgasse

    by Bregman Written Feb 10, 2005

    Drosselgasse - the heart of Rüdesheim's night life. This narrow alley is full with restaurants and wine shops. It's packed with people all day long until very late at night (as I could hear for myselft, my hotel room window being right in the alley...)

    We didn't see it but apparently the party spills out onto the street in season with people enjoying dancing to the music provided by some of the street's establishments!

    Dress Code: None that I can discern!
