There is the Mainz Cathedral here and many other churches as well. I’ll save my photos of the churches for another day. But, I had to show the pink stone in this church!

And to end our stay in Mainz, the door of the Gutenberg Museum, one of the oldest museums of printing in the world, was another great find in Mainz! No photos were allowed inside, but it was a very interesting museum.

It is located opposite the cathedral in the old part of Mainz. It is named after Johannes Gutenberg , the inventor of printing from moveable metal type in Western Europe. The collections include printing equipment and examples of printed materials from many cultures. It also features two Gutenberg Bibles.

A group of citizens founded the museum in 1900, five hundred years after Johannes Gutenberg’s birth, to honor the inventor and present his technical and artistic achievements to the public at large. They also aimed to exhibit the writing and printing of as many different cultures as possible. What a great find!

I hope you have enjoyed our doorscursion, on multiple days, as much as we did! I have written several posts on Mainz in case you need to catch up. Thanks to Norm for bringing us together every week! This is just one of many photos in the Thursday Door Collection featured by Norm2.0!   Won’t you join in or take a peak at all the doors?  We enjoy everyone’s doors every week!

    Love these captures of beautiful Mainz, especially the first one, because you have both the arch and the renaissance building with the round tower in there. I don’t know how I feel about a painting with real hair…but a visit to the Gutenberg museum would certainly be appreciated by me!

    I didn’t think you could wow me any more than I already was after your previous posts on Mainz … but you cranked it up several notches!!
    – the beautiful door with the great round window overtop
    – that wonderful white tower trimmed in red!! … and it has 4 little turrets!!
    – the door with the large cross doorknocker in the centre
    All of them give me reasons to plan another trip to Germany with Mainz on the list!
