Excellent wine, food and a suggestive and relaxing atmosphere. This, and much more, await you at the Mainzer Weinmarkt, an event that, for two weekends, will cheer visitors to Mainz.
For 8 days, from afternoon to evening, visitors can have fun in the beautiful surroundings of the Mainzer Stadtpark und Rosengarten. This is the beautiful public city park, dressed for the occasion, with lots of stands and stalls.
The Weinmarkt Mainzer is not just an extraordinary eno-gastronomic event. It is an opportunity to get closer to tradition and art. At the Artist's Market, for example, you will find beautiful woodwork, watercolors, goldsmithry, glass processing and silk painting. A really wide offer, with over 80 artists from all over Germany and from neighboring countries.
Obviously, wine will be the true protagonist. At the event will take part over 40 wineries and producers. There will be tours and walks with tastings. Naturally, lots of live music accompanying the event. Every day, a different performance is scheduled.
And, just to not miss anything, for the little ones, two weekends with shows, readings and inflatable games. Saturday from 15 to 20, and Sunday from 13 to 17. All in a truly relaxing atmosphere. The prerogative, moreover, of Mainz.
