One river. Two cities

The state capitals of Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate, Wiesbaden and Mainz, are separated only by a river - the Rhine.

One River. Two cities - The Rhine

As close as Wiesbaden and Mainz are geographically, they are just as different - both cities have their own distinctive flair. Locals and guests appreciate the proximity and enjoy the diversity of both state capitals with the neighboring regions of Rheingau and Rheinhessen.

Hessen's state capital Wiesbaden invites visitors to enjoy, experience and stroll around with its impressive architecture, extensive parks, wide range of restaurants and unique history as a world spa town of the 19th century.

Mainz, the capital of Rhineland-Palatinate, is only about 14 kilometers away and fascinates with its 2,000-year-old history - shaped by Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of printing, the Romanesque cathedral, a diverse museum landscape and the carnival.
