Rümmelsheim is a municipality in the district of Bad Kreuznach in Rhineland-Palatinate, in western Germany. The first reference to the town dates back to 1125 as Rimilisheim.[2] The southern part of town is named Burg Layen, after the castle ruins which are a prominent feature there.

The town is located next to highway A61 in a valley, the slopes of the hills being used extensively as wine fields. Besides various wine producers, it is also home to a large wine trading company, WIV international.
