Cruises to Mainz

About Mainz

Germany's Mainz -- a 2,000-year-old city of leafy squares, timbered medieval buildings, intriguing cobbled alleys, charming restaurants and offbeat shops -- is a highlight of any cruise along the Rhine River, not least because it's so easily explored.

Just a short stroll from the riverside, you'll find two of the city's highlights: the Gutenberg Museum (which celebrates Mainz's role as home of the world's first printing press and its first product, the world-famous Gutenberg Bible), and the wonderfully atmospheric St. Martin's Cathedral, also known as The Dom.

There are also Roman ruins, magnificent Baroque churches and Rococo houses to discover, as well as spectacular stained-glass windows designed by the famous artist Marc Chagall.

But if you've had your fill of sightseeing and museums, just take a stroll around Mainz's charming Old Town, where you can browse antique and art shops, and tuck into delicious German coffee and cake at one of its many street cafes. No doubt you'll consider your day there well spent.
