A very warm welcome
to the Drosselhof

Our historic restaurant is uniquely located: in the world-famous Drosselgasse in the city of Rüdesheim on the Rhine River.

As the first and oldest guest house in the Drosselgasse, the Drosselhof has been known for centuries far and wide as a meeting place for people who want to experience the convivial spirit of the Rhineland. Formerly frequented by the boatmen of the Rhine River, local residents and visitors from around the world now come to enjoy our unique ambience.
The Drosselhof seats 250 guests. Choose from one of our dining areas decorated with historical paintings or take a seat on our spacious covered patio. We offer regional fresh cuisine that you can savor with one or two glasses of wine. Whether you are having a big party, celebrating a family occasion or just dining out with your partner – we are looking forward to catering to your individual requirements with our delicious range of menus.

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

The rarity, 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. THREE of the most exciting varietal ice wines of this magnificent vintage we have combined for you in this limited trilogy – to give away or enjoy yourself.


homemade dumplings, served with apple-flavored red cabbage and lingonberries

Finally back in season: Our venison stew with homemade dumplings, served with apple-flavored red cabbage and lingonberries.

Winter is game season in Germany, so be sure to enjoy our hearty venison stew with a tasty glass of red wine. You’ll find more tempting dishes on our menu.

The only restaurant in the Drosselgasse
with its own song

Play 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.
