The Cathedral was right outside the Christmas Market so we popped in to see the Nativity. It was lovely to see so many people gathered round it waiting patiently for their turn to take a photograph. No pushing and shoving!

The Christmas market was right outside. The cathedral. The nativity scene was cute. But the cathedral was beautiful. Love the opportunity to see the history.

If you're in Mainz you need to see it's cathedral. It isn't special and pales compared to many other cities. That said it is a local reflection and should be seen. 20 minutes is more than enough. There is another church up the hill with prettier windows.

I have visited this cathedral for quite a few times now and and it's rather dark inside. But this is and important part of what makes it so exceptional for me. Every time I'm impressed by this breathtaking medieval feeling it immediately creates when you enter. You can breath and fell the centuries inside these walls. I love to be there get lost in this atmosfear. Stunning!

Remarkable architecture 1000 years history.
Did attend sung Eucharist at 10:00 with heavenly sung choir in German was the best thing of my vacation so peaceful and touching and later had a tour around the church indoors and of course couldn't miss the Christmas market right out side during the day and at night. The stalls, the crowd and the food is just marvellous.
Have seen many Christmas fairs but this was one of a kind worth visiting.
