Rental Car in Mainz Airport
Mainz is famous for its grand buildings, and the architecture immediately strikes you as soon as you cruise into the city in your car rental from Mainz Airport. Some of the towers and turrets of Mainz look just like fairytale palaces. Mainz is part of the Frankfurt Main Rhine region, which is a big wine growing and river region in the central west part of the country. Indeed, the majority of Germany's wines are produced in this fairly concentrated zone around the banks of the Rhine, making it a very special place for oenophiles everywhere. So, it is also highly recommended that you try some of the local wines that are produced here, and perhaps take a few home with you to enjoy as well. Rhine wines are known for being very well balanced and absolutely delicious, and there is something to appeal to everyone's taste here - if you would like a delectably sweet wine, for example, why not try a Riseling?
There is no shortage of inspiring attractions to discover using your car rental from Mainz Airport. Mainz has a special place in the history of the printed word, for example, as it is where the very early Gutenberg Bible and the Mainz Psalter were both printed - find out more about this when you visit the Gutenberg Museum which is dedicated to the invention of the printing press. It is named after Johannes Gutenberg who lived in Mainz in the 15th century and who, in the early part of this century, is credited with revolutionising the world by inventing a printing press. We also highly recommend paying a visit to Mainz Cathedral. Devoted to St Martin, this thousand plus year old edifice (it dates all the way back to no less than 975 AD) is steeped in history and it is always very beautiful and tranquil inside.
Road Trip Mainz Airport
Once you have arranged car hire in Mainz Airport, all of Germany is your oyster! There are plenty of interesting day trips that you can do from Mainz Airport, and if you fancy a longer trip you could always stay for a night or two in a city like Berlin or Munich which is easy to reach from Mainz Airport by car. As mentioned above, Mainz is part of a region that connects a group of cities - such as Frankfurt, Mainz and Darmstadt - along the plains of the Rhine. The journey time between these cities is usually less than an hour, so this is one road trip you might want to consider. It only takes around half an hour to drive from Mainz to Darmstadt for example, and all that you need to do is to take the E42 and E35 roads in a south easterly direction. Another option is to cross the border into France - which is pretty close by. The beautiful French city of Strasbourg is just a short drive to the south west, for example.
