Visit Mainz

More than 2000 years old - but still young!

Located on the banks of the Rhine, Mainz is a city on which Romans, prince-electors and figures such as Barbarossa and Gutenberg have left their mark, and today it is a vibrant and idyllic location that residents, businesses and academics call home.
As a Gutenberg alumna or alumnus, you were at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and perhaps even spent some of the most important years of your life at JGU. What has since changed since you were here on the Gutenberg campus and in the city? Visiting is worthwhile at any time! And not just for pleasure: Mainz, the 'small metropolis' at the heart of the Rhine-Main region, is an attractive location for conventions and meetings.
