Eberbach Abbey.


Eberbach Abbey is a former Cistercian monastery founded in 1136 by Bernard of Clairvaux. Its Romanesque and early Gothic architecture make of it one of the most significant historical sites in Hesse. The interior scenes of the 1985-6 film 'The Name of the Rose' were shot in the abbey.

It is also one of the two main venues of the Rheingau Musik Festival, an international summer music festival mostly dedicated to classical music.
