Main city square is a must in Mainz. Surrounded by historical houses and the cathedral. Dom not come late, the cathedral close about 5 p.m. (or 6 p.m.? not later)

The market was a very pleasant market to go around. My wife and I also had lunch at one of the cafes in the market place; it's a lovely place to sit and people watch. The buildings are very beautiful.

Classic German town square with great restaurants and shopping and a LOT of history. Don't miss the cathedral!

Saturdays and Wednesdays they hold the farmers market close to the cathedral. Lots of fresh local produce and local foods.

Mainz is a relatively newly built city, as it was severely bombed during WWII. When they rebuilt the market place they honored the old style of the buildings. The builders took great care to make the marketplace look much older than it is.

We look for interesting squares when we travel. This was nothing out of the ordinary, and nothing wrong with it either. Just not worth a special trip.

Good location for picture taking and shopping. Close to Gutenberg Museum and just down the plaza to Schillerplatz and the Carnival Fountain.

I'm not sure about a Christmas market. They do have a food, clothing, and odds and ends market a few times a week. I'm not sure of the days, but their chamer of commerce could probably answer your question better than any... More
