Winter in Mainz

Christmas market around the cathedral

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. On demand and with existing capacities there is the possibility to print Christmas motifs in the print shop of the Gutenberg-Museum.
