Taxi from Hahn to Mainz

by JohannaKaarina

Hi!
I would appreciate a rough estimate (100€? something else?) for a taxi fare from Frankfurt Hahn airport to Mainz?
Many thanks in advance!

Shuttle buses Hahn Airport to Mainz

You can ask a taxi company for a quote. With the given distance I think it will be more expensive than Euro 100.

that bus certainly makes sense !
and a taxi would be much more than 100 euros I guess and I am sure that most taxidrivers from Hahn are NOT familiar where to drive, while the busdriver is used to it.

The both above are right. Germany is not that much a taxi-going country. Even a short ride is expensive. I used to pay from a 10 to 15 minute ride from my flat to the airport around 15 Euro. Good if you are short in time, with luggage but not good for longer distances...

Thanks a lot for your answers! I was merely thinking about a taxi, as shuttle busses had quite inconvenient timetables for me, but we'll see how it goes!

Travel Tips for Mainz

Kirschgarten

by yooperprof

The old Kirschgarten, just off Augustinerstrasse, is one of the most pleasant parts of the old city. Half-timbered houses give it a bit of a "disneyland" feel, but this is a real neighborhood, and businesses that cater to the local community and mixed in with more "touristed" places.

Rheingoldhalle - the Congress/Convention Center

by yooperprof

Next to the town hall stands the similiarly modernist Congress/Convention Center, amusingly called the Rheingoldhalle. No Valkries however!

It was designed by the Danish architects Hans Dissing and Otto Weitling, the successors of Arne Jacobsen (the creator of the Rathaus next door.)

Note the rather bare, spare, and monumental plaza. The modernists hoped that the modern world citizens of Mainz would live up to the ideals that inspired them to create this brave, secular, non-commercial space. But it's a little bit too George Lucas-y for my taste.

Local Attractions

by antistar

Mainz is a great base for exploring the entire Rhineland-Palatinate and Hessen regions. Within a short train ride from the city are Wiesbaden (10 mins), Oppenheim (15 mins), Worms (30 mins), Darmstadt (30 mins), Frankfurt (40 mins), and an entire string of Rhein Gorge villages, like Bacharach and Oberwesel. Further afield you can reach Koblenz, Speyer, Mannheim, Limburg an der Lahn in only an hour or so using the very efficient local train transport.

They have a outdoor selling post as well as a restaurant. You'll notice that many arabs go there and some of the staff speak Arabic. They have a tasty cooking style and you won't get up hungry. Ali Nazik whith lamb, 9 Euros

turkey meat stuffed whith vegetables and ground nuts.

Gutenberg Museum

by yooperprof

Local boy makes good - brings printing to the European scene - unwittingly launches a revolution!

The Gutenberg Museum attempts to tell the whole story of printing, not just the local perspective, but the entire global saga of movable type and the reproducible image.

If you are a bibliophile - like me - or just someone who enjoys knowing "how things work" this museum is a must-see. An additional matter of interest is that the Gutenberg is housed in a beautiful structure that dates from 1664. Although it was heavily damaged in World War II, it was carefully restored to its original appearance.

The museum has two copies of the treasured 42-line Bible produced in Gutenberg's garage just around the corner.

The armored figure who stands above the main entrance is one of the Holy Roman Emperors, although I'm not certain which one.
