Explore Mainz

The major sight in Mainz is St Martin’s Cathedral (975 AD). Its six towers loom majestically over the town. The impressive and vast cathedral also hosts the Diocesan Museum, which displays religious works of art, and a thousand-year-old crypt with a gold reliquary of the saints.

The Landesmuseum Mainz is also worth a visit; it contains, among other exhibits, Roman tombstones of legionnaires from the 1st century and the towering Column of Jupiter from the same era.

To fully appreciate the town, take a walking tour of the compact Aldstadt. The medieval area has been lovingly restored and half-timbered houses nestle in the Gothic cathedral’s giant shadow. This district also contains the shopping boulevard of Am Brand, home to many chic stores.

Mainz is a delight for shoppers and you’ll find shops selling everything from trinkets to designer brands. The Krempelmarkt Flea Market is also worth visiting. As you’d expect from a city situated in this region, the wine selection in restaurants is extensive and the food has a healthy French influence too.

The Rheingau region surrounding Mainz draws visitors with its natural beauty as well as its wine. Nearly every town and village from Wiesbaden to Assmannshausen, no matter how small, is a major wine producer. Both the people and the towns tend to retain a cheerful ambience.
