where once the most powerful woman in the Middle Ages lived
The Irish monk and hermit Disibod founded this cultural heritage when he settled here on the plateau. This region is a natural place of spiritual energy. The Celts and Romans have paid homage to their gods. Disibod and his disciples Giswald, Clemens and Sallust built some churches when he died at the age of 81 around the year 700.
In 1108, the Counts of Sponheim had built a women's hermitage , which was led by Blessed Jutta von Sponheim. She was also the teacher of St. Hildegard, who was later Jutta's successor. With 18 nuns moved Hildegard to the Binger Rochusberg in 1147.
Old views show that until 1790, large parts of the monastery still stood, although Normans and Hungarian plundered, chased away the monks and destroyed the monastery.
1809, when the left bank of the Rhine was under French rule, the "National Property" Disibodenberg was auctioned and used as a quarry for residential buildings in Odernheim, Staudernheim and the construction of Staudernheimer bridge. To date, only two-thirds have been explored by the former State Office for the Preservation of Monuments. Another special feature is a 170-year-old park which was laid out in a style influenced by an English landscape gardening.
