Hot rod tour Mainz 75 min

google
Mini hot rods are THE hype in Germany and have taken cities like Hamburg, Frankfurt or Berlin by storm within a very short time. They inspire and provide astonished looks wherever they appear, which also makes them the perfect advertising space for companies. Tourists queue up to experience the sights of Mainz on one of the most unusual city tours. And many Mainz residents have already succumbed to the HOTROD virus. The small, white cars (Mini Hot Rod) are also happy to be booked for company events, birthdays or hen parties and bachelor parties. One of the best activities in Germany now with us in Mainz.

The museum is nicely laid out and offers views and history of the stunning pieces of the Bishop's treasure of Mainz and therefore of an important part of German history. Great for historically minded tourists and good for locals who want to deepen their appreciation of their cities cultural and religious heritage.

Located just next to Mainzer Dom , there you can find World-famous early-Gothic figures, taken from the former western rood screen, can be seen in the vaulted halls, which date from the time of the Swabian dynasty in the Middle Ages.

We went back to the Cathedral a second time, partly in order to gain access to the museum associated with it. It was a disappointment. The brief history provided (at least for those who don't read German) indicated that the Cathedral had lost most of its treasure over the years, and sure enough, there was not much to see. In the lowest level there was an exhibit of some old and worn statues, pieces of trim, etc., which were underwhelming to say the least. When we paid the modest entrance fee, the person at the desk also mentioned an exhibit in the Cloisters. We asked about this, and somewhat reluctantly, they walked us to another part of the building and unlocked it. (Otherwise we would not even have been able to see it.) This looked to be somewhat more promising, but again the exhibit was minimal--though most of the items were behind glass to protect them. These were mostly monstrances, crosses, etc., made of precious metals. All in all, I would suggest that people not waste their time on these exhibits. Perhaps their one asset is that, if you go, you'll probably be alone while looking at them--no one else seems interested in them either.

Photography in the main museum is not allowed indoors. Within the Mainz Cathedral and in the outdoor cloisters, it is, regardless of what any cranky locals say. Take photos in a discrete manner with no flash or tripod and it should be no problem. The Mainzer Dom, (Martinsdom or, officially, Der Hohe Dom zu Mainz), was founded in 975 or 976 and dedicated 29 August 1009. It was damaged several times in its history, most recently in 1942. Restoration began in 1945 and took 30 years to complete.
