    Buildings such as the imposing Mainz Cathedral dominate the landscape of a city extremely. I like the connection of various architectural styles.

    Unfortunately undergoing restoration outside, inside is open and that mean, majestic, but especially cool because of the time of visit.

    If you go to Mainz you can't see the Duomo from every corner of the city. Also worth a visit for its history.
