Update 03/17/2020

Gästeführerverband Mainz e.V. and mainzplus CITYMARKETING GmbH as the responsible tourism organisation have now announced that the city tours conducted by guides of Gästeführerverband Mainz e.V. will be cancelled with immediate effect.

This concerns both individually bookable guided tours and cultural walks as well as the public guided tours that take place regularly. This regulation applies with immediate effect and at least until April 19, 2020, when the situation will be discussed again and the period of time extended or shortened if necessary.

The background to this is the generally applicable decree on the part of the federal, state and local authorities that social contacts should be avoided as far as possible and that groups/people gatherings in public areas should be avoided as far as possible in order to contain the potential spread of the coronavirus as far as possible. The joint decision of the Tourist Guide Association Mainz and mainzplus CITYMARKETING is intended to contribute to reducing the potential health effects and damage caused by Covid-19 as much as possible.

Information on the city tours in Mainz is available from mainzplus CITYMARKETING GmbH, Department of City Tours, gaestefuehrung(at)mainzplus.com, Tel. +49 6131 / 242-827.

Update 03/16/2020

In accordance with the agreement between the Federal Government and the heads of government of the federal states in view of the corona epidemic in Germany, all museums and cultural institutions will be closed to the public until further notice.

As the Landesmuseum Mainz, managed by the General Directorate of Cultural Heritage (GDKE) Rhineland-Palatinate, will remain closed, the Tourist Service Center at the Landesmuseum Mainz will not be open to the public until further notice.

Further information is available at http://www.landesmuseum-mainz.de/ and https://gdke.rlp.de/de/service/pressemitteilungen/detail/news/News/detail/schliessung-von-museen-einrichtungen-und-liegenschaften-der-generaldirektion-kulturelles-erbe-rheinl/.

Update 03/13/2020

The state capital of Mainz explicitly points out that slowing down the spread of the virus has top priority. All federal, state and local measures are aimed at this. The administrative staff of the state capital Mainz met today with the head of the responsible health department Mainz-Bingen and decided on further measures to protect against coronavirus infections. They will apply from Monday 16. March 2020 up to and including 19. April 2020 (end of the Rhineland-Palatinate Easter holidays).

mainzplus CITYMARKETING is following this decision, therefore event operations in the Rheingoldhalle, the Kurfürstliches Schloss, the Frankfurter Hof and the KUZ - Kulturzentrum in Mainz will be discontinued immediately.

You will find a continuously updated list of the events concerned including relocation information at the top of the page.

Tourist Service Center

The Tourist Service Center at the Brückenturm will close from 16 March 2020 until 28 March 2020 inclusive. Event and concert tickets purchased at the Tourist Service Center can be returned to the Tourist Service Center on reopening under the following conditions:

  • If an event has been cancelled, tickets for that event can be returned within a period of 8 weeks after the Tourist Service Center reopens.
  • If an event has been rescheduled, the tickets remain valid for the alternative date. Ticket purchasers can still return tickets up to four weeks before the alternative date.
  • For all tickets not purchased at the Tourist Service Center, ticket purchasers must contact the respective event organizer and inquire about its return policy.

Update 03/12/2020

The managment unit of the city of Mainz, together with the head of the responsible public health department Mainz-Bingen, announced a general decree of the city administration of Mainz on Wednesday, March 11th at 5:00 pm to reduce the further spread of the corona virus (SARS-CoV2).

According to this decree, events with more than 1,000 people present in the Mainz city area (outdoors and indoors) are prohibited until April 13, 2020 and must therefore be cancelled. Events in this period with more than 500 and less than 1,000 persons present must be evaluated individually by the respective organizer and the public order office. Events with less than 500 persons are currently not affected.

The general ruling currently has only limited effects on mainzplus CITYMARKETING events.
Only the concerts of "Alte Bekannte" (16 March, Kurfürstliches Schloss), Dub FX (18 March, KUZ), "Lumpenpack" (29 March, Frankfurter Hof), "Versengold" (3 April, Kurfürstliches Schloss) and KAKKMADDAFAKKA (6 April, KUZ) are currently being evaluated to see, if they can take place - the results will be published here shortly.

In order to prevent a further spread of the corona virus, the parties at the KUZ cultural centre in Mainz will be limited to a maximum capacity of
of 500 people.

Cooperative events and rentals in the locations managed by mainzplus CITYMARKETING are reviewed in close cooperation with customers and partners.

Further information on the events will be available here shortly.

Update 03/02/2020

According to the current assessment of the authorities, there is no acute danger from Covid-19 for events in the buildings of mainzplus CITYMARKETING GmbH (Rheingoldhalle, Kurfürstliches Schloss, Frankfurter Hof and KUZ Kulturzentrum Mainz). There is therefore currently no reason to impose a restriction on the event business in the above mentioned buildings. We would like to point out that this statement relates to the current state of affairs (as of 02. 03. 2020) - if the situation changes, we will adjust the information accordingly. The following measures apply to the events in the houses of mainzplus CITYMARKETING GmbH: 

  • trained and professional medical staff as well as security and order services 
  • For medical emergencies, a treatment room for general emergency care is available in each house. 
  • Safety meetings before every event 
  • Disinfectant dispensers in all buildings 
  • There are extended cleaning measures for heavily frequented areas such as B. Entrances, door handles, elevator buttons. The sanitary facilities are equipped with disinfectant dispensers. 

The mainzplus CITYMARKETING GmbH is in close and constant exchange with the German Red Cross, the health authorities (including Health Office Mainz-Bingen) as well as the European Association of Event Centres (EVVC), the German Convention Bureau e. V. (GCB) and the German National Tourist Board V. (GNTB) to monitor current developments and respond promptly. 

The Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Health offers a good overview of Covid-19 on its homepage. Among other things, information on the current status, the course of the disease and hygiene tips are illustrated there. The basic principle is that compliance with the relevant hygienic protective measures (e. g. frequent and thorough hand washing, adherence to the sneezing and coughing label, avoid shaking hands) is urgently recommended. The first point of contact for flu symptoms requiring treatment is the family doctor. The practice visit or a necessary home visit should be clarified in advance by telephone. In the area of responsibility of the Health Department of Mainz-Bingen (district of Mainz-Bingen and independent city of Mainz), no confirmed cases of infection with Covid-19 have occurred to date (as of 02. 03. 2020). Regarding the handling of suspicious cases, the Mainz-Bingen Health Office strictly adheres to the daily updated guidelines of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and is in constant contact with the Ministry of Health and the State Investigation Office.
