Mainz Cruise Packages

Mainz, Germany is a Roman city with a 2000 year history. As you enter the beautiful city by boat you will be immediately impressed by the 17th century palaces and churches that dominate the skyline. The city is quaint and romantic, with quiet squares lined with half-timbered houses and businesses. Journey into the old town, the pride of the city, and you will discover bourgeois baroque palaces and homes that now hold boutiques, coffee shops and wine bars. The faades of the homes and palaces of old town have been carefully restored, adding to the ambiance and the visible continuity of history in this lovely city. When you visit Mainz during your European River Cruise you will find yourself transported back in time by this city so rich in history.

Augustiner-Street is the strolling avenue of Mainz. Much like the Champs Elysees in Paris, you will find excellent shopping and vibrant activity along this attractive road. Another spot you should not miss is the Augustiner Church with its spectacular baroque faade. It was built in the mid 18th century and had the good fortune to survive World War II unharmed. Another large part of the history of Mainz is its past as a major Roman city north of the Alps. The importance of Mainz to the Roman Empire is evidenced by the constant discovery of ruins and artifacts in and about the city. Throughout your Rhine River cruise you will be exposed to the architecture, art and history that has made Europe the place it is today. Mainz is an excellent example of the transitions of custom, culture, and lifestyle throughout history.
