"Rheingau - wine - and a famous Abbey :-)" Eltville by Trekki

Eltville Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 28 photos

Eltville is one of the countless little wine villages along the Rhine Valley between Mainz and Koblenz.

It became quite famous also for another interesting location close by - Eberbach Abbey, Kloster Eberbach.

This is where parts of the movie The Name of the Rose with Sean Connery have been shot in 1986.
(my goodness, this movie is really more than 20 years old.... I wasn't aware until my guide told me today).

As I will visit the village of Eltville also one day, I will write about Eberbach Monastery on a separate page (Eichberg to be precise).

    Ingrid, the sad part is I too remember the fantastic "The Name of the Rose" movie! This is a small page, but it packs a powerful punch! One of these days, I must tour Germany.

    Hello Ingrid, I have read your descriptions of Kloster Eberbach, but I guess that was on another page. I saw La Traviata a week ago at the Frankfurt Opera, on one of my subscription nights, but the rest of the performances are sold out, I believe.

    You are determined to get me to come and visit Eberbach, aren't you? LOL I have to see where that lovely jelly came from one day soon, naturally :-) And now that wonderful restaurant gives me another reason to want to visit ;-)

    Divine dumplings befitting such a divine place. Look forward to seeing some of these places (and eating some of these dishes) for myself one day. :)

    That's a very tasty looking meal! Had I the time, I'd like to visit here - saw and really enjoyed the film (but it's hard to imagine 20 years!). :-)

    I was enthralled with NAME OF THE ROSE when I read it--to think it was filmed here is fascinating! I would love to roam these halls...
