The cathedral is one of the great sights of the City of Mainz. I like the cross-vein which you pass on the way to the Cathedral's museum.

Hi Annabelle, have only ever visited as a tourist with my German partner who grew up close to Mainz. Will ask her if she knows of where possibly to look. Will be back in touch if I have any news. However, they do have a large administrative office at the Cathedral and there's always someone there who can speak English. Why not give them a call. Good luck. T
