Home of the printing press

Situated on the Rhine River, the history of Mainz spans more than 2,000 years and can be experienced through the medieval market squares, Romanesque Mainz Cathedral or by viewing the first printed Bible in the bibliophile paradise of the Gutenberg Museum – celebrating Mainz’s famous reputation as the home of the first movable-type printing press.

Today, Mainz is recognised for its world-renowned wines and festivals, prestigious university and growing status as a media hub. On arrival to Frankfurt International Airport, a convenient 30-minute onward journey aboard the local S8 train takes you into the heart of Mainz.
