  • We have Eberbach monastery at various events or just visited. Great, very large complex with ancient and atmospheric surroundings. The Basilica is stunning in its simplicity. You can return there and like to stay even (have we not tested). Ideal trip, especially when guests from overseas there are! Very impressive!

  • Visited in 2012. I recognized parts of the Abbey from the movie "In The Name of the Rose!" Wonderful experience walking the paths of scenes in this really good movie! I was floored to learn the histories of this beautiful Abbey and Vinyards! Just beautiful!
  • The guides were great. Beautiful place and well worth getting the English guide if it's available so you can learn about the history of this place!
  • Beautiful monastery with great wine. They're known for their Riesling. Just wish they had tours in English (you can book private tours at $50 in foreign languages).
  • Just a great place to see and visit. You must try the audio tour. Worth it. Full of wonderful history. At least a couple of hours to see it al.
  • A very old former cloister turned a venue for weekend relaxation and leisure events. Great concerts during August Rheingau Music Festival. Vast variety of amazing wines can be tasted and purchased at the Wine shop.
