A very interesting cathedral that got (partly) destroyed and re-built several times in its long history. No entry fee, and well worth a visit even if you're not religious.

This beautiful dark red color cathedral is just at one end of Mainz Town Square. It has a history of over 1,000 years old. Inside the cathedral, there are tombs and monuments. It is quite an amazing cathedral in Mainz.

Another example of lovely German Cathedrals. This one in red stone was lovely to look at and inside was so tranquil away from the hustle and bustle of today's world.

This cathedral has served the residence of Mainz well. The interior provides a quiet and thoughtful place to communicate with God. It is a very peaceful place to stop a remember how luck we are.
