Mainz city break

Zest for life on the Rhine


This lovely city on the Rhine is all about zest for life and more than 2,000 years of culture. Both the Romans and Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of letterpress printing and the city’s most famous son, have left their mark on the regional capital. The picture-perfect old town with its numerous wine bars and the banks of the Rhine are both lovely spots for a walk or a little refreshment. The numerous wine festivals held all year round are the perfect opportunity to experience the typical Mainz zest for life over a delicious glass of wine from Mainz itself or from Rhine-Hesse, the wine-growing region all around.

A real zest for life:

That Mainz feeling


Every city has its attractions. There are loads in Mainz and they are all worth the journey. But there is also something special in Mainz, something you cannot see, but something you feel as soon as you arrive in the city: that Mainz feeling. Head on over and discover that zest for life that is so uniquely Mainz!
