Love of life on the Rhine

Mainz

The historic buildings, monuments and museums in Mainz are informative witnesses. If you get close enough and have a good look, you'll learn something about our 2000 year old city. Roman temples, aristocratic palaces, the cathedral and Marc Chagall's blue windows await you!

Joie de vivre and a 200-year-old culture characterize the endearing state capital of Rhineland-Palatinate. Embark on the footsteps of Johannes Gutenberg and the art of printing, for example, at the popular city tour of the same name. Combined with a visit to the cathedral or a walk through the church of St. Stephan with the world-famous Chagall windows, you will experience Mainz from its most beautiful and exciting side. The Roman finds such as the Roman theater, the Isis and Mater Magna sanctuary or the Roman stones in many places in Mainz to the founders of the Rheinstadt.

Roman Castrum Moguntiacum, Jewish Magenza, Electoral residence and capital, Archbishop's seat, university and fortified city in the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation and Mainz Republic. Epochs of the "Golden Mainz", as the city is called since its heyday in the Middle Ages.
