A private 2 Hours walking tour to the Historic City of Mainz
Germany's wine capital, Mainz was founded by the Romans on the left bank of the Rhine and has more than 2, 000 years of history. Looming over the Altstadt's romantic warren of cobblestone streets is the huge Romanesque cathedral, burial place for centuries of ruling Prince Archbishops.
The city's museums have Roman artefacts discovered beneath the city, like a small armada of 1700-year-old warships now kept in an industrial locomotive shed. In the 1430s the Mainz citizen Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press, and the museum dedicated to him has two of the remaining editions of the Gutenberg bible. Mainz also puts on a big-time carnival, and its televised parade on Shrove Monday pulls in hundreds of thousands of spectators.
If I say that Mainz, infact is Hessen's most alive city in so many ways, I won't be a lie.
