Mainz Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Mainz, once the episcopal seat of the influential Prince-Electors, became the capital of the Land of Rheinland-Pfalz in 1949. The city's location at the confluence of the Rhine and the Main is ideal for trade. The city is Germany's leading wine market and the scene of a carnival whose buffoonish antics are televised throughout Germany. Mainz is immensely proud of its native son, Gutenberg, the father of printing (c 1395-1468).
