A lot of information well presented about the visionary woman (and Saint) - easily found on the Rhein promenade upriver from the train station. Information is not limited to St. Hildegard but also some fascinating Roman surgical instruments (with their uses), and some historical information around the establishment of the town. Worth a visit if in the area.

The museum is situated along the waterfront not far from the Bingen City railway station. Housed in the old electricity building, the museum boasts a small yet impressive exhibition of Roman surgical equipment. The main focus of the museum is the life and times of St Hildegard. This was presented in story boards with some original texts referencing her life... More

I knew about Hildegard von Bingen through her music. I was thrilled to find what an exemplary life she led, including being a conduit for information and support to some of the leading political figures of her time. An herb garden that was the beginning of natural medicine, a life dedicated to helping others, and a mind unlike any other... More

I had never heard of Hildegard before visiting Bingen but with references to her everywhere we decided to visit the museum to find out more about her life. The museum is not big but it is crammed with information and in 2 hours we learned a lot about her fascinating life. There is unfortunately no audio guide and reading from... More

This museum is small but packed with information about Hildegarde's life and times. There are various translations available from the desk and they are comprehensive. The cost is €3 and was well worth it to me. Other than Hildegarde, there are some artifacts and displays about Bingen itself. It all came together to form a cohesive experience. Outside, don't miss... More

Pluses: Entrance on the day we visited was free. Easy access & location: the museum is located next to the Rhine. Parking is available, not free. Dogs allowed (this was a minus for us as my husband is very allergic to dogs). There are 'Roman' days, with activities for younger kids, check out website for dates. Super interesting for those...

A delightful building with a very detailed exhibit about Hildegard's life plus a small 'Hildegarten' nearby. Excellent info, English translation available if needed. Our visit was badly impacted by the very intrusive voice of a woman guide who appeared to be telling a group of 5 local visitors, at great length, what they could have read/seen for themselves - the...

We visited this museum on a trip to the Rhineland area in September, 2014. I have a degree in music history and was interested in learning more about Hildegard, but I have to say it was a bit disappointing. Among the best things were the grounds outside. She was an herbalist and they grew herbs there that she would have... More

I visited the museum mostly to see the findings from the grave of an ancient roman physician, discovered near Bingen - old medical instruments, very interesting for me. The museum about the life and work of Hildegard van Bingen is also interesting and informative, unfortunately everything is only in german. While you walk around, you can listen to medieval music,...
