Catch a train and ride in comfort to Mainz. Be enchanted by the charm of the city and dive into a world of art, culture and history. All of the major attractions are easily accessible on foot. You can admire the many extravagant fountains, pillars, monuments, and sculptures which are spread throughout the city. It's a unique atmosphere with historic buildings and St. Stephen's Cathedral. There are nice open spaces, parks and a nature reserve for those who love the outdoors. A highlight is the quaint Kirschgarten district with old half-timbered houses historically restored with a new lustre. In July 2016 at the town festival the city of Mainz will celebrate the 200th birthday of the region of Rheinhessen, offering wine tastings, live music and culinary delights.
