Today you cycle to the romantic town of Etville on the Rhine. The townscape is characterized by its many, very well preserved half-timbered houses. From the center of Eltville it is only a few kilometers to Eberbach Monastery.
The monastery with its former Cistercian abbey is one of the most important cultural monuments in Hessen. The monastery gained fame in 1986 as the location for the filming of the world bestseller “The Name of the Rose” by Umberto Eco. However, the road to the monastery leads steadily uphill, so we recommend this stage only to experienced cyclists.
