How far is the train station from the Boat dock in Mainz?

by robrock

I am travelling to Mainz and want to take the K-D boat cruise north from Mainz. How far is the Mainz Haputbanhoff from the boat dock?

local public transport network Mainz
http://www.mvg-mainz.de/fileadmin/downloads/fahrplan2008/mvg-liniennetzplan_2008.pdf
You can take one of the many trams or bus lines to Rheingoldhalle/Rathaus stop.

If you buy e.g. a local public transport ticket from Frankfurt Airport to Mainz, the buses and trams in Mainz are included.
With a normal train ticket or rail pass they are not. Single ticket for tram/bus inside Mainz is EUR 2,20.

Ingelheim am Rhein

by Nemorino

The next stop after Mainz on the Regional Express trains is Ingelheim am Main, which calls itself "The Red Wine City".

It is a pleasant little city with a population of 200,000. In Germany it is best known as the headquarters of a large pharmaceutical company called Boehringer Ingelheim.

The white train in the photo is an InterCity (not InterCityExpress, just InterCity) called IC 2026, on its way from Passau to Hamburg-Altona by a rather circuitous route. This train doesn't stop in Ingelheim, just barrels on through. It has just come from Mainz, and will soon go through the really scenic parts of the Rhine Valley before stopping in Koblenz and Bonn.

Second photo: The Ingelheim station building has been painted red and looks rather nice, but it doesn't seem to have much of a function any more (it was locked when I was there) since the ticket machines and schedules are all out on the platforms. Of course there are no human beings on hand to sell tickets or give information -- this is Germany, after all, and their policy is to automate everything so they can moan about the high unemployment rate.

Third photo: The Fridtjof Nansen House is the adult education center of Ingelheim. I was there recently to do a presentation and workshop for the English teachers, and was highly impressed with the large, newly modernized classrooms.

Gutenberg Museum

by bonio

Gutenberg was the man who invented printing as we know it. He produced the first printed book (Bible naturally) an removed the need for them to be written out longhand.
The museum is full of printing exhibits old and new, the oldest and original Gutemberg ones are kept in a strong room but are still available to see. Found it interesting to see that really the process had not changed too dramatically until the advent of the computer. Well worth the €3 entrance fee. English (and other languages too) translation booklets are in each room.

Pondering at the City Monuments

by hunterV

There are enough monuments to ponder at in the Old Town:
starting with Johannes Gutenberg monument in Gutenberg Square
and Friedrich Schiller monument in Schiller Square
to a queer stone monument not far from Market Square (picture 5)...
These are some interesting monuments I have seen:
* Johannes Gutenberg, a great inventor;
* Friedrich Schiller, a great German poet;
* the Carnival monument;
* Little Bronze Soldier (I called it so);
* Queer Stone (a modern surrealistic monument, to make you think, too…).
