Rüdesheimer noble courts
On the Oberstrasse street, there are a number of beautiful old courts from different cultural epochs: the Frankensteiner Hof, the Ritter‘sche Hof and the Bassenheimer Hof. Undoubtedly the most beautiful of all the Rüdesheim noble courts on the Oberstrasse is the Brömserhof, built in 1292. The Gothic chapel and the ancestral hall with magnificent frescoes in the former seat of the old Rüdesheim Brömser family are still an impressive sight. Today, the Brömserhof is home to the Museum of Mechanical Musical Instruments.
The Klunkhardshof is one of the most impressive half-timbered buildings in Rüdesheim’s old town and its solid back wall formed part of the town’s oldest fortifications. The house was formerly owned by the highly respected Klunkhard family, one of whom was an abbot of Eberbach Abbey.
This late Gothic corner tower is 20.5 metres tall and was built in the 15th century. It used to stand directly on the banks of the Rhine and formed a part of the old town fortifi cations. On his visits to Rüdesheim, the poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe stayed in the guest house “Zum Adler”,
which was then located in the tower. From its windows, he admired the beautiful view over the Rhine.
The two Glockenspiel chimes in Rüdesheim, which can be admired every day between 9:30 am and 10 pm, are a popular attraction. One of these chimes on each full hour from the tower of the Rüdesheimer Schloss in the Drosselgasse cobbled road. It shows different wooden figures which symbolise the four great wine vintages of the 20th century. Its counterpart, with bells made from original Meissen porcelain, can be admired in the windows of Siegfried’s Mechanical Music Cabinet and is played on the half hour.
