A town on the Rhine in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate with around 25,000 inhabitants at the mouth of the Nahe into the Rhine at the foot of the Rochusberg. Even before the Romans, there was a Celtic settlement here called Bingium due to its convenient location. The Romans were already cultivating vines here around the turn of the century. The river Nahe forms a natural border between two wine-growing areas. The district of Bingen-Bingerbrück lies to the left of the Nahe estuary and belongs to the Nahe wine-growing region. The single vineyards Hildegardisbrünnchen, Abtei Rupertsberg (also known as Ruppertsberg), Römerberg and Klostergarten, which belong to Großlage Schlosskapelle, are located here. They commemorate the famous abbess and mystic Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179), who worked at Rupertsberg Abbey. To the right of the Nahe is the Rheinhessen wine-growing region with the town of Bingen and its districts of Büdesheim, Dietersheim, Dromersheim, Gaulsheim, Kempten and Sponsheim.
