Top Attractions in Ruedesheim am Rhein
What travellers are saying
- A beautiful monument, a stunning view, and picturesque scenery. You could spend an afternoon exploring the trails in the forest at the top. It was very hot when we visited so we rode the tram to the top which was fun and convenient. It would be a beautiful hike through the vineyards as well.Written July 3, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We were in Rudesheim on a hot day, and had we not had the Seilbahn to ride, I don't think we would have made it up to the monument and seen the great views of the river. The cable car is a fun ride over a vineyard. Reasonably priced. Seats 2 very comfortably.Written July 21, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We had a guide that was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the demonstrations of all the unique instruments. The very old building the museum is in a sleeper surprise. The old chapel with its old fresco and original flooring was neat to see. I wish I could afford to buy one of the fancy bird music boxes.Written July 21, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Take your choice, walk through the vineyards (uphill) or drive to the Abbey. This was a pleasant way to spend a lazy afternoon. If you opt to drive there is plenty of free parking at the Abbey. I even saw a couple of Recreational Vehicles parked there, and of course the ubiquitous tour bus! The church, like most in Europe, is an active church with patrons on site to worship. With this in mind, please be respectful and keep noise and talking at a low volume. The church has a pictorial (not sure if it's mosaic or fresco) of Christ's life and opposite is a depiction of St. Hildegard's life. Pretty and worth the trip and time, but, I was not awestruck.Written October 9, 2021
- Cute. That's what comes to mind when I think of Drosselgasse. It was rather short and narrow, I really didn't expect that. But it was pretty. Mainly restaurants though. Apparently it can get very busy there.Written July 24, 2021
- The tourist office was very friendly and helpful. We bought tickets for the ringtour and required about the ferry to Bingen.Written July 27, 2022
- Drive up, or take the Luftseilbahn from Rüdesheim up to the monument. Looking at it from the Rhein I personally don't find the monument all that impressive, but once up there, its like a Wow. It's super huge and impressive, and the view is terriffic. From down below you have no idea as to what you can see from up there. It's a lot higher than you think. It's decieving.Written October 19, 2019
- We enjoyed our visit to the Asbach Distillery. I went because my husband wanted to go. I am now glad I went. There is a lot of history behind the art of Brady distillery.Written October 14, 2018
- Adolf himself walked us through the history of this wine making company and the delights of the wines he offered. It was engaging, delicious and just the right amount of time. The wine cave is picturesque and it's right in the town - great walking distance to many other sights to see.Written December 13, 2019
- Unfortunately we arrived after it closed, but we were able to check out the grounds and view the castle. The place is conveniently located right off the Rhine River and close to city center. It would have been nice to enter the building to learn more of its history.Written August 3, 2018
- Pleasant inside, nice lighting and a few rescued stones and sculptures - otherwise modernised and nothing specialWritten February 14, 2022
- This church, now the Parish church of Eibingen, is the former monastery church of the Benedictine monastery, founded by St. Hildegard in 1165 now massively altered of course. In 1998 an extensive interior renovation took place, during which the altar area was redesigned, giving Hildegard pride of place. There are bones of two other persons in glass cases on the wall of this now very modern looking church. The gilded reliquary is lovely, though smaller than I expected. It resembles a building, with the cardinal virtues allegorically depicted on its doors: justice, fortitude, prudence and temperance. On its front and back four saints are portrayed, amongst them St Benedict. There are several steps up to the church and also a long ramp with plenty of parking in front.Written October 21, 2017
- Not sure this was worth the Euros I paid to get in. There are some interesting artifacts and exhibits for sure, but the museum itself is kind of dark and dingy...maybe that should be expected for a torture museum. So many twists and turns that it's sometimes difficult to figure out which hallway you should be going down.Written September 8, 2019
- This is one of the best and biggest examples of a traditional half-timbered house. I love these charming houses with their contrasting white walls and dark timbers. I was taken by its slightly wonky appearance and its size. The house is 4 stories high and very wide, with a row of dormers at the roofline.
HOW TO FIND IT:
You can easily miss this house because it is a little tricky to find. It doesn’t front onto the square and there is no sign to show you which lane to head down.
If you stand with your back to St. Jakobus church, there is a lane across the square and almost opposite On the corner of the lane is a large yellow coloured restaurant ‘Jakobus Klause’ (see photo).
Head straight down the lane and you’ll find it at the bottom.
You can’t actually go inside because it's privately owned so it is just a photo opportunity but it is worth stopping by.
It was built by the Klunkhards, a family of merchants. The 15th century was obviously a good time to be a merchant because the house is enormous and is clearly a sign of wealth and success.Written November 8, 2019
- Quaint little town to walk down the alleys. Christmas market in town and streets are decorated. Good restaurants to eat everywhere. Enjoy the local white wine. Can get here by car, train or boat down the Rhine.Written December 12, 2018
