Hotels in Mainz

From 29th November to 23rd December 2018


In winter, Mainz is as charming and lively as ever! Visit the large Christmas market in front of the cathedral, or explore one of the smaller, cosier Mainz WinterZeit markets all over the city. They are guaranteed to put you into the mood for Christmas! During Advent, the city offers tourists a range of events such as guided tours and wagon trips and exclusive city break packages. 


Every year, hundreds of festive stalls offer their wares at the Mainz Christmas market on the squares surrounding the city's Cathedral of St. Martin. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, there are concerts and stage events to enjoy, among them the traditional fairy tale production at the State Theatre beloved by generations. There is also the Christmas card printing press workshop at the Gutenberg Museum and the large illuminated and richly decorated Christmas pyramid with hand-carved life-size crib figurines at the entrance to the Christmas market.


The Mainz WinterZeit markets take place in front of the city's main station, on Schillerplatz and on Neubrunnenplatz, where shoppers find lovely Christmas presents and meet up with friends. Enjoy a glass of mulled wine or punch and sample Christmassy food in a seasonal market atmosphere. Thanks to a special arrangement with the city authorities, the three markets with around 40 stalls remain open until New Year's Eve.
