If you only have a few minutes it is worth it! We created our own walking tour of Maon with a local amongst us. The Dom is under construction on the main tower, but picturesque!

Try to get a local guide to show you this cathedral. He/she will have all the historical tales to tell you. It is a must see when in Mainz.

The cathedral in Mainz is beautiful and historic but there were no guided tours or information leaflets so it was difficult to make the most of the visit. The nearby Dom cafe was excellent, with good service and fantastic cakes!

Enjoyed walking around the building. One of the towers was covered in scaffold when I was there so no photos!

We visited the Cathedral after having been to StStephens church and found the Dom interior to be very gloomy by comparison. It is imposing but we found the interior to be surprisingly dark and lacking in interior lighting to fully enjoy its architectural attractions.

Sit in the square and take in this wonderful church situated in the heart of Mainz. We listened to street performers and then had a walk through.
