Mainz is a beautiful city on the Rhine river.
We spent the day exploring and enjoying the sights.

Our first stop was the Gutenberg Museum. A 3 story building with several types of printing machines as well as a lithograph machine. There were many books dating back hundreds of years and one of the original Gutenberg 42 lined Bibles. (Pictures were not allowed to be taken inside)

Next was lunch in the square. We had Schnitzel which is a traditional German meal. A thin cut of pork, lightly breaded and then fried. YUMMM. After out long lunch we headed over to a mini train ride. The ride was about 45 minutes long and took us to the historical highlights. We ended the day with Nana spitting in the Rhine and the kids soaking wet from a fountain. A good day was had by all.
