Great Wine Capital
Steeped in history and tradition, Mainz is an elegant, modern city in Germany's largest wine-growing region and a major center for tourism. You can explore numerous world-class wineries in the area, but be sure not to miss Mainz's renowned wine academy, wine institute, and wine market. Visitors interested in stretching their legs after a hearty meal and a few glasses of wine can explore the many attractions scattered around the city's historical old town. Mainz was one of Germany's most-damaged cities in World War II, and the post-war period brought the largest building boom in the region's history. The urban renewal of the old town center changed the inner city landscape, adding pedestrian zones around the city's famed Romanesque cathedral. You can walk almost anywhere within Mainz. If you prefer speedier sightseeing, hop on a public bus or train. You also can join a boat cruise on the Rhine river. Our Germany itinerary planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
