  • the nuns are very welcome, to buy in the monastery shop is worth and it is possible there is also the Klosteeigenen wine taste.

  • Nice goal of hiking from Rüdesheim from. Nice shop with a small selection of books, including spelt pasta and wine!

  • This revival style Abbey was rebuilt at the beginning of the last century and is located in the middle of the vineyards above the town of Rüdesheim. The Benedictine Sisters live peacefully again since late 1945. A visit to the Abbey Church of Sainte-Hildegarde naturally is. Outside the two imposing towers impress and inside you can admire beautiful murals.
