Of course, the old town of Rüdesheim is particularly famous for the famous Drosselgasse – a real tourist magnet that attracts numerous visitors every year. But the picturesque half-timbered town also has a lot to offer. In addition to the idyllic alleys, the wine museum, the law museum, as well as the remains of three castles and several burgher and noble houses from the 16th to 18th centuries are absolutely worth seeing. Other highlights are the Niederwanddenkmal and the Niederwaldtempel high above the city, which offer a fantastic view over the city and the Rhine Valley. The Adlerturm, a 20.5 meter high late Gothic corner tower that was part of the former city fortifications, is also impressive.
