Ibis Mainz: from the Hbf

We would appreciate advice on how to get from the Mainz Hbf to the Ibis Mainz hotel. Taxi, bus, walk?

This hotel is really close to Mainz Römisches Theater train station. If you're coming from Frankfurt Airport by S-Bahn this is one stop before Mainz Hbf.

Thanks abalada. We are travelling by train, so we will keep an eye out for that other station.

That's the station where they are currently excavating Roman theatre ruins right at the side of the platform (therefore the station name)

Thanks altamiro. This is not the most appropriate forum, but I notice you are in Mannheim. Before coming to Mainz, we are travelling with a German friend by car to the HD/Mannheim area. We are not sure whether to find accommodation in Mannheim and visit HD, or vice versa

From either base, we could visit Weinheim, Ladenburg, Neckargemünd........by train, and then go to Mainz

Any thoughts? They'd be appreciated.

Mannheim for shopping, Heidelberg for sightseeing. Mannheim is by far less pretty than Heidelberg but as the much larger city has more to offer in regards to shopping, entertainment etc.

It is pretty much the same whetehr you start from Mannheim or from Heidelberg.

Local transportation in the Rhine-Neckar area
