About Mainz elsewhere
"On the territory of the former "Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation", the German Confederation ( Deutscher Bund )was founded, a loose union of 39 states (35 ruling princes and 4 free cities) under Austrian leadership, with a Federal Diet ( Bundestag )meeting in Frankfurt am Main."
"It was a politically important seat of the Prince-elector of Mainz (see: Archbishopric of Mainz )under the Holy Roman Empire ,and previously was a Roman fort city which commanded the west bank of the Rhine and formed part of the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire."
"From Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire to Otto von Bismarck's German Reich, Nazism and the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, no other nation has moulded Europe the way Germany has -for better or worse."
To allow us to sleep later on our traveling home day we booked a room at an Ibis Hotel in Mainz, Germany.
While taking in the sights we stumbled upon an Irish Pub with a very friends German/French Bartender who, after few pints of Guinness, sounded a little Irish.
About places near Mainz
In early September they have a wonderful Medieval Market and Fayre. You can eat the Zwiebelkochen (onion cake) and drink the Federwiesse (new wine), buy all kinds of medieval costumes and drink beer as you walk around the village. They also have a Knights jousting tournament each day.

It is easy to reach this lovely village from Rüdesheim which is a starting point for several cruise boats on Rein and which also has station with frequent connection to several bigger cities around. You may walk either along the river shore or through forests and vineyards higher on the hills.
