St. Hildegard Benedictine Abbey

Abtei St. Hildegard 1, 65385 Rüdesheim am Rhein

Visit the St. Hildegard Abbey in the midst of the vineyards above Rüdesheim. The community of nuns lives according to the rules of St. Benedict and following the tradition of St. Hildegard of Bingen.

Their lives are characterised by prayer and work, contemplation and action, seclusion and hospitality. When you reach the Klosterberg hill, you can first enjoy the spectacular view over the Middle Rhine Valley. You can also visit the pretty abbey church and admire the magnificent frescoes in the style of the Beuron School of Art or simply spend some time in contemplative silence. The large monastery shop offers a wide selection of books, cards, art from the monastery’s own workshops, fine wines, prosecco and liqueurs from the monastery winery, as well as spelt products, herbal teas and Hildegard herbs.

Stop off at the integrative monastery cafe, which offers small meals and cakes from the monastery kitchen, as well as a breakfast buffet on selected weekend dates. The Herring Dinner on Shrove Tuesday and the St. Martin’s goose dinner before Christmas have been a tradition for some time.
