One of the cities I stopped by for some time during my Europe trip was spend in the beautiful city of Mainz in Germany! As some of you may know, my boyfriend lives in Germany and Mainz is his hometown. I’ve visited this city several times, but there seems to be special charm to it that’s quiet captivating every time I visit . This time around, I was happy to be able to spend more time exploring and just enjoying the city with the best weather in spring!

Located on the river Rhine, this city is situated only 30 minutes away from Frankfurt. Mainz has many charming characteristics; with various points of interest and a mostly known for its old town, with half-timbered houses and medieval market squares.
