Gebert´s Weinstuben

The restaurant, in the meantime run in the fifth generation, can seat 48 guests in friendly modern surroundings, uniting elegance with over a hundred years of wine tradition. The combination of historic charm and informality has gained it the nickname 'Mainz Living Room.' The kitchen backs continuity and regionalism and the wine list includes over 150 great wines from the region.

Racke - Besucherzentrum Haus Kupferberg

The Museum shows a large collection of historic sparkling wine glasses, early poster art and the original art nouveau pavilion from the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. Richly carved historic wine casks and medieval and Roman cellars extending deep below ground are also fascinating.

Restaurant im Weingut der Stadt Mainz

Just a stone's throw away from the best Harxheim southern slope sites, a refined regional cuisine and first-class wines from their own vineyards join together in an absolutely inspired, culinary symbiosis. Accommodated in an old manor house dating from 1725, the proprietors attach great importance to adapting the restaurant concept to existing conditions.

Education

With its over 500-year history, nearly 36,000 students and 8,700 employees, the Johannes Gutenberg University forms the scientific centre of the Mainz and Rheinhessen region.

Wine

With vineyards covering an area of 26,500 ha, Rheinhessen is Germany’s largest wine-growing region. Most of all, it is the Riesling wines from the Rhine and the hill country that are causing such a stir of late. Also, Rheinhessen's classic Silvaner grape has once again become a topic of discussion. Along with Riesling and Silvaner, the white Pinot varieties are also gaining favor. Red wine grapes have doubled in acreage over the past ten years.
