Bodenheimer Mönchspfad (Bodenheim Monk’s path)

St. Alban and the delicious Silvaner

St. Alban's was one of the oldest and most important churches in Mainz, "a second Mainz Cathedral", states the Institute for Historical Regional Studies at the University of Mainz. The history of the church dates back to late Roman times. It was burnt down in 1552 and the monastery was closed in 1802. But some historical references - like in the naming of the site "Bodenheimer Mönchspfad" - remain. The St. Albans monastery owned land there. Today, a wide variety of grape varieties grow on fertile loess loam, including delicious Silvaner. Bodenheim is part of the RheinTerrassenWeg,a hiking trail parallel to the river Rhein.
