Rudesheim is located in Rheingau's northwestern corner. The main vineyards are with riesling grapes, producing premium white wines. Visitors can taste the local wines (like the signature Rudesheimer Riesling) in the numerous wine houses in downtown.

Among town's landmarks and popular attractions are Siegfrieds Mechanisches Musikkabinett (musical instruments museum, some self-playing), Mittelalterliches Foltermuseum (Mediaeval Torture instruments and tequniques), Rheingauer Weinmuseum Bromserburg (castle / wine museum), Asbach Distillery, Pfarrkirche St Jakobus (church), Burg Ehrenfels (castle ruins), Eibingen Abbey, Weinfest (wine festival in August), Rheingau Musik Festival.
