You want to explore several sights of the city but remain dry? Then get on the Gutenberg express or the City-2-See bus and discover the impressive Mainz hotspots on the way.
... in the 1000-year-old St. Martin's Cathedral. To this date the cathedral is the landmark of the city and one of the most important cathedrals in Germany.
