EIBINGEN Hildegard of Bingen
Hildegard of Bingen founded her second monastery in Eibingen near Rüdesheim. Today, 55 Benedictine nuns live behind the colossal walls of the Abbey St. Hildegard newly founded around 1900. The Abbey St. Hildegard, according to church law, is the subsequent monastery of Rupertsberg and Eibingen, founded by St. Hildegard in 1148 and 1165, respectively. Worth seeing in the Neo-Romanesque monastery grounds is the flamboyant monastery church painted between 1907 and 1913.
