Day Trips

Our tips for special destinations in Mainz and the surrounding area

  • Gutenberg ExpressStarting daily at Gutenberg Place close to the State Theatre, tours depart every 70 minutes from 10:30am am to 5:15pm daily on the Mainz Tourist Railway. Along the route, see the Cathedral, drive down to the Rhine River and up to the citadel. Hop on and off at seven places, including St. Stephen’s Church and the castle.
  • Primus Line Shipping Tour – Whether you just want to take a quick break, enjoy the summer breeze, party or relax, summer or winter: our tours on the rivers Main and Rhine always make for a unique experience. Discover Frankfurt from its best side, travel to the famous vineyard region “Rheingau” or enjoy a romantic evening on board with delicious food and wine.

  • Riesling Shuttle – In a modern minivan, you will tour as part of a small group through the idyllic landscape of the Rheingau wine-growing region.  The trips combine memorable moments in hilltop vineyards and visits to castles in the world's oldest wine-making estates.  Castle Vollrads and Castle Johannesburg are not just exciting for wine aficionados; they are a “must see” for anyone who wants to get to know the Rheingau, home of fine Rieslings.  Tasting typical Riesling varieties is as much a part of the touring experience as a visit to the extraordinary wineBANK in the heart of the Rheingau.
  • RheinSteig – The RheinSteig is a 320 km trail on the right side of the Rhine that links Bonn, Koblenz and Wiesbaden on mainly narrow paths with steep climbs and descents, leading walkers and hikers to forests, vineyards and spectacular views.

  • Vineyard Tour Learn all about the fine wines of the region and the art of wine cultivation on a tractor-drawn carriage ride along the Rhine Hill route, which offers magnificent views of the rhineland Plain. Afterwards tuck into Mainz’s signature dish of ‘Weck, Worscht und Woi’ (bread, sausage and wine).
