Welcome to Mainz!

Two thousand years of history have lent Mainz a cosmopolitan air, and museums and cathedrals of various architectural styles dot the city. Bring home a book as a souvenir—Gutenberg worked here, and the museum dedicated to him is a highlight. It is a port on the left bank of the Rhine River opposite Wiesbaden and the mouth of the Main River.

Mainz is noted as the birthplace of Johannes Gutenberg, who invented the art of printing with movable type there about 1440. Mainz is also an important media centre, with publishing houses and radio and television studios.

Some remains of Roman times survive, and relics are housed in the Roman-Germanic Central Museum.

Also in the city are the Max Planck Institutes for Chemistry and for Polymer Research and the Academy of Sciences and Literature. Gutenberg is also honoured by the Gutenberg Monument (1837), the Gutenberg Museum, and the headquarters building of the International Gutenberg Society. There are museums of art, history, and natural history, as well as a diocesan museum. Mainz is the site of an annual fair and pre-Lenten festivals.
