In the capital of Rhineland-Palatinate, Mainz, two important rivers meet because here the Main River flows into the Rhine River. The metropolis can look back on over two thousand years of urban history: Mainz may be less well-known than Frankfurt or Cologne but there is just as much to discover. Mainz is perfectly made for vacationers and business travelers! Start with a stroll along the Rhine River. Here you will pass the Electoral Palace and the Baroque Parliament but also modern buildings such as the Rheingoldhalle and the City Hall. Turn off the Rhine bank into the old town and marvel at the landmark, the imposing Romanesque imperial cathedral of St. Martin! You will also find real old town flair around Augustinerstraße and Kirschgarten with their stores and half-timbered houses.
The Gutenberg Museum is definitely worth seeing, dedicated to the inventor of letterpress printing as one of the world's oldest museums for printing and the art of writing. A completely different pleasure is a guided tour of the ZDF television garden on the Lerchenberg with an exciting look behind the scenes. Afterwards, a cappuccino is a good idea in Mainz's Zollhafen which has been transformed into a new urban quarter. The art gallery there shows international contemporary art.
Mainz really gets exciting in the winter because that's when Carnival takes place. The carnival season beckons with parades, great days and all-night parties. The Mainz Carnival Museum is a year-round tribute to these wild weeks.
