Easy access by public transportation: Take the S 8 from Wiesbaden terminus at 9:19 am to arrive at Mainz train station at 9:31 am. A single ticket costs € 2.80. From there, it's a ten-minute walk to the Schillerplatz.

During the walk, we'll learn about the more than 1.000 years of city history as a major bishopric in the German Empire and also about the military history of the city as a bulwark against the French empire. We'll finish off with a "Marktfrühstück" in the marketplace.
