you can experience history from Ruedesheim by train or by the

Gutenberg, the inventor of the letterpress with agile letters,
was here at home, and still today you can admire in the Mainz
Gutenberg's museum two copies of the famous Gutenberg's Bible.
You should include in the plan for a Mainz trip already a whole
day to be able to enjoy the multi-layered Mainz art scene and cultural
scene in the museums and on the stages.

seeing or, however, the city-historical museum where you can admire
the exhibit numerous of the rich city history of the Roman roots
