Mainz has something of a reputation as an attractive venue at the heart of the metropolitan Frankfurt – Rhine – Main region. It is very easily reached by whatever means of transport you choose and is, also, a mere 25 minutes away from FFM airport.
True to the notion of 'the joys of life by the Rhine', the state capital of the Rhineland Palatinate is always worth the trip. Mainz is often thought of as the German wine capital and, sure enough, there are enticing little wine bars everywhere, inviting you to come in and have a 'Schoppen' (a glass of wine) in a cosy atmosphere. Traditional inns, wine pressed and delivered direct from the local wine producer, as well as many wine festivals and related events are central to the lifestyle here.
