Rheinkai 21, 55411 Bingen am Rhein
The central attraction of the Rochusberg is the pilgrimage church of St. Rochus, built in 1895 in neo-Gothic style. The first chapel was built on this site in 1666. The Rochus pilgrimage with Rochus festival also goes back to this time. A special feature is the Hildegard and Rupertus altar from 1895: The Hildegard altar shows scenes from the lives of the saints (outside of the service times only the church vestibule is open). In the Hildegard Forum of the Sisters of the Cross, exhibitions, lectures and seminars deal with the saint. A meditation room invites you to an audiovisual journey through the vision books. Medicinal plants and trees that are described in Hildegard's »Physica« grow in the “Klostergarten”. A lunch restaurant and a hotel are also attached to the Hildegard Forum. Especially from the Kaiser-Friedrich-Turm there are wonderful views. Many footpaths lead over the Rochusberg and on the sail butterfly trail and the forest nature trail you can also learn a lot of interesting facts.
