Magnificent Mainz

Mainz, the capital of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany boasts historical buildings, monuments and museums which are only too happy to welcome you and enchant you with their historical attributes. If you get near enough and look closely enough, you will learn quite a bit about the 2000-year-old city. Johannes Gutenberg, the Cathedral and Marc Chagall‘s blue stained-glass windows are awaiting you!

With its strategically perfect location on the river Rhine, Mainz has been many things to many people: the Roman Castrum Moguntiacum, the Jewish Magenza, the residence and capital of the Prince Electors, an archbishopric, a university town. These are all epochs of “Golden Mainz” as the city has been known since its heyday in the Middle Ages.

By explaining the city of Mainz, one special thing has to be mentioned: The world wouldn’t be the same without books. And there wouldn’t be books in the well-known form without Johannes Gutenberg who was born in Mainz. Being elected as Man of the millennium, Gutenberg, inventor of book printing, is probably the most important son of the city.
