We almost skipped Kloster Eberbach, since we'd visited a lot of churches and castles and other historic sites already, but we're glad we didn't. It's in a lovely wooded setting above the Rheingau vineyards, and the age of the place really comes through - it's not hard to imagine monks living there over 800 years ago. I don't believe they...

"What does he say master?" The Name of the Rose is a wonderful novel and one of my favourite films starring Sean Connery in his post-Bond career. So we thought we would visit the monastery where many scenes were filmed. The audio guide was available in English from the ticket office, and I thought the narration was excellent. Touring the...

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 buildings. I've also done Easter markets and a wine fest here. This is great place for history buffs, wine enthusiasts, or anybody who wants... More

Love the grounds, the food, and the beer...especially the dunkel! Beautiful place to stroll. This is always on our agenda when visiting the area. Try the Frankfurt Green Sauce! The Kloster kitchen does an excellent version of it. Once you've tried it you will find the fixings and recipe (in German) packaged up at some local groceries and markets. The... More

Walk around, rest, watch, enjoy some food, wine, beer, come back in various seasons, buy tickets for the Rheingau Musik Festival - Kloster Eberbach is a place worth visiting at 365 days a year

If you like an atmosphere of hustle and bustle, laughter and loud conversation, then this is your place. Good service, excellent food, but for us older ones a bit loud. But try it!!! Absolutely.

I attended this event in Kloster Eberbach for the Easter Egg event which occurs once a year. The last tine I attended this was in February 2016. I enjoyed the event and purchased several decorative eggs. Well worth visiting and purchasing.

We booked a late evening wine tasting tour and walked through the monastery tasting six different types of Rieslings. We had dinner before in the monastery resaurant which was great. The tasting tour was amazing: historic rooms lighted just by 20 candles, romanesque and gothic arches, wine barrels and an amazing guide Erik who did a perfect job in educating... More

We rode our bikes and decided to stop here. We didn't eat but had some wine here, and the wine was amazing. This is such a great place to go to. Just beautiful. The views are lovely and this is place is just gorgeous. If you have never been to a Kloster, you really should check it out. Religion aside,... More

If you walk towards it from the parking lot it has a wow factor. But then it's 8€ entry for an adult, it's a lot. If you walk past the modern entry scanning units ( like you want to enter the tube) you end up in the yard. It's pretty empty, it has a museum besides that to many modern... More
