Our musicians and our wines will enchant you – come spend some care-free hours with us
We take our motto from the song of a well-known German folk singer:
Pour all your woes into a glass of wine
And add your worries – that’s just fine…
Now think of nothing but of happiness
And with a ‘one – two – three’ you will find out
Life will be beautiful again, no doubt!
Please get in touch – we are happy to cater to any request you may have!
Looking forward to seeing you soon,
Your team at the Drosselhof
COMING FROM THE COLD
Hand-picked at minus seven degrees minimum and fermented in a still frozen state – that is our ice wine! It includes the sweetness of the “summer of the century” 2018, and due to the low quantities, it is going to get more and more exclusive. Coveted icewines are rare and their value increases every year. We united THREE of the most exciting single-origin ice wines for you belonging to this grandiose “summer of the century” as a limited TRILOGY.
Savoury chanterelles are in season now:
These mushrooms are a much sought-after delicacy which grow only in Europe’s deciduous and coniferous forests. Our culinary team prepares them in a variety of delicious ways that will tickle your palate! The choice is yours: tagliatelle with chanterelles, rösti (fried grated potatoes/hash browns) with chanterelles, or one of the many other dishes from our seasonal menu with these popular mushrooms.
The only restaurant in the Drosselgasse
with its own song
Our restaurant has a long tradition. Founded in 1725 as the first guest house in the Drosselgasse, it has weathered many hard times since then. In 1885 Otto Hausmann wrote the Drosselhof its own song
„Zu Rüdesheim in der Drosselgass“
J. Pauli later put the words to music and all radio stations broadcast the song, making Rüdesheim, the Drosselgasse and the Drosselhof famous far beyond the city limits.
