Mainz Opening Hours

Justin Bunch | CityscapeTravel My interpretation of the tourist-side to Mainz. Most of the city worth seeing is on the south side of the Cathedral, with a handful of reconstructed monuments scattered around the rest of the city

The logistics of trying to see everything can be a challenge, especially in a location is complicated opening times. Fortunately Mainz is both highly interactive and tourist friendly. Below I have summarized the opening hours for each of the accessible destinations in my guide.

For Mainz the best times appear to be Thursday-Saturday, and I don’t see the need for any special considerations given the standard times.

Electoral Palatinate

Once the heart of the medieval Holy Roman Empire, it was put to the torch by its many enemies. Today only enigmatic monuments betray its past glories.
