  • I have visited Kloster Eberbach several times in the past three years. In Oct '14 saw a special screening of the movie "Name of the Rose" which starred Sean Connery that was filmed inside the Kloster ...  more »
  • In the extensive, historically very significant investment, there is much to see: - the great Romanesque church, almost without any internal alignment and sacred art, but with an impressive interior - the well-known dormitory of the monks - the Baroque dining room - really liked the huge wine presses also the Museum, I still didn't know from visits to a long, long time ago gave me. The history and significance of the monastery and the life in time are explained very well. Thanks to the State of Hesse, which constantly very much invested in Kloster Eberbach.

  • 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.
