Mainz travel pictures

Sightseeing in Mainz

Just a few kilometers away from Wiesbaden lies the city of Mainz. Its history goes back to when Germany was part of the Roman empire and there are still some remains left of this era such as a 4th century town gate and the Roman aqueduct. The city has developed itself through the years and features of a long history are visible everywhere.

The main sights in town are Mainz cathedral, the market square and the St. Stephan church. The city is small enough to walk though the old town and its is easy to go to the Deutschhaus, the emperor street and see the Theodor Heuss bridge which crosses the river Rhine. Another sight that is worth to see is the Domus Universitatis building. A bit further away is the Christ church which is built in a rather unusual style and you expect it to find it in a English city such as Oxford. For those interested in the history of Mainz, there is a guided walk which takes you to the most important places.

The city of Mainz is decent sized with a population of around 300.000 inhabitants. It is well connected to other cities by train. Especially its location close to Frankfurt makes it easy to get to. Cities such as Darmstadt and Heidelberg are no more than one hour away. For a day trip out of Mainz you can visit the middle Rhine district which is an UNESCO world heritage site which also includes the town Koblenz.
