Then, continue towards Eddersheim, passing vineyards and historic towns until you reach the confluence of the Main and Rhine rivers. After crossing the Rhine, you’ll arrive in Mainz, the historic capital of Rhineland-Palatinate, boasting a rich heritage spanning over two millennia. Don’t miss iconic landmarks such as the Grand Cathedral and the renowned Gutenberg Museum.
