At the confluence of the Rhine and Main rivers lies the city of Mainz, the beautiful capital of the Rhineland-Palatinate region. On this guided city walk our focus is on the history of the city: early settlements, Roman era, cathedral, old town and modern city centre. Mainz, one of the oldest German cities, is famous for its distinctive deep red sandstone buildings, such as the Romanesque Mainz Cathedral, Baroque style Augustinerkirche, Mainz Staatstheater and others. Architecture and history buffs will also take interest in the local half-timbered houses and medieval market squares; some buildings spanning back as far as the Roman era.
