Worth the drive out - only about five minutes away from town. Beautiful church - very conservatively decorated - lovely gift shop with wine tastings, and a little coffee shop on-site. Doesn't open until 11 though.

As we did not have a car or bike we took a taxi to the Abbey. There is a lot of history and it is located on a stunning view of the Rhein and the town of Rüdesheim. Well worth the visit

We loved walking up through the vineyards to the abbey. Shopping a bit, tasting some wine in the shop, hearing the nun's beautiful singing and enjoying the view.

Response from Johannes H | Reviewed this property |
The monastery was rebuild in "historistic style" in about 100 years ago. So the pillars are hardly original, but set there for "decorative" purposes, as usual in this period.
