"Even the Monastery Has Become a Winery" Edenkoben Travelogue by Russell_the_Wombat

Edenkoben Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 157 photos

This is Edenkoben's most beautiful winery. The complex has an interesting history. In former times this was a Cistercian nunnery. A few of the medieval buildings are still there, although the church is gone. Its name "Heilsbruck" translates to "bridge of salvation".

The nuns probably cultivated wine already. Later on, when the nuns were gone, the buildings were sold to someone who tunred them into a winery.

Because you asked: No, I got no wine to taste here either! Wombat is and remains still thirsty.

Heilsbruck is located a bit outside the town. The location on the hilltop above the vineyards creates fine views from the adjacent small valley.

And another view in spring, before vines and trees sprout their leaves.

Wombat sentinel on the lookout.
