Attractions in Mainz

Mainz has so much more to offer than just its delicious wine. Among the oldest cities in Germany, Mainz boasts a vast 1000-year-old cathedral, a perfect backdrop for the sea of lights which illuminate the yearly Christmas market during the Advent season. You won’t be able to overlook Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press; Mainz has dedicated the Gutenberg Museum, the World Museum of Printing and the Johannisfest at the end of June to its most famous son. Prepare to be overwhelmed by the heavenly blue light of St. Stephan’s Church caused by the Chagall Windows, which are unique throughout the world.
