We took an optional tour with Viking Cruise and it was quite disappointing. The tour guide at the monastery was very very nice, knowledgeable but had a heavy English accent that we had a hard time understanding her. It was a bit disorganized as she...More

Enjoy the silence at Kloster Eberbach, nice museum store, great atmosphere (not only due to the fact that The Name of the Rose was produced here), gorgeous park and cool hotel. The acoustics in the church is challenging!

We had a guided tour there during which the history of the place itself and the history of winemaking were explained to us in such a fascinating way that next time we might overnight there. Great wine tasting too.

In spite of record heat the restaurant and patios were filled. Still, the service was superb, and the view stunning. Even better, the Kase Knodel and Pfiferling Suppe was absolutely delicious.
