City of Gutenberg and wine capital of Germany with a private guide

Mainz is famous for its University, its Roman and Jewish heritage, its status as a media hub and regional capital, and its four most defining features: the Romanesque cathedral, the Gutenberg printing press, Marc Chagall and the Rhineland carnival. The people of Mainz have a good reason to be proud of their city's history spanning almost 2, 000 years. This rich cultural heritage incorporates a well-established winegrowing tradition, which only adds to Mainz's unique appeal. And not to forget the wonderful x-mas market during the winter season.

Why not enjoy Mainz from some totally different perspectives. Immerse yourself in the art, culture and history of the city and let yourself be enchanted by the beauty of by-gone eras. follow the footsteps of well-known figures and will fascinate you with unusual views of the city. I will organise your own unforgettable personal walking tour of the city.
