The city of Mainz is best known for its many incredibly well preserved historical sites. The Marktplatz (main square) is adjacent to the Mainzer Dom cathedral, a stunning example of Romanesque architecture from the 11th century. The main square is also lined by amazing old buildings constructed partially from timber. The square especially comes to life around Christmas, when you can enjoy the beautiful glow and atmosphere of the annual Christmas market. Another must-see on your trip to Mainz is the Gutenberg Museum, a tribute to the inventor whose inventions in printing contributed enormously to the distribution of knowledge to the masses. Here, you’ll find some of the original printing equipment and a model of his workshop. With so many things to do and see in Mainz, we’ve curated a list of great Airbnb vacation rentals for your stay.

This guest house is so beautifully furnished that you may never want to leave! Most of the house is in a tasteful white, with natural light streaming in from floor to ceiling windows. Exposed wood detailing and furniture give the house a warm, cozy touch. Another unique aspect of the house is its mini fireplace enclosed in a metal box, with a vent channeling smoke away in place of a chimney. In terms of location, the guest house is a little further from bustling downtown Mainz, but closer to the lovely Taunus forest. Come in the warmer months and you’ll hike amongst lush foliage, and in the winter months, enjoy a panoramic landscape blanketed in powdery snow.

This apartment accommodates 2 guests but if you’re traveling with a young one below 2 years of age, you can also put in a request for an extra cot from your host. Around the apartment is a bus station that serves multiple bus lines, including one which will bring you to the University of Mainz. Alternatively, an S-Bahn station is just 10 minutes away on foot. However, please note that the host does not permit smoking in the apartment, only in the garden.

The winter months in Mainz can get cold and wet, so enjoy the sun as much as you can! This apartment is simple and well maintained. Large windows are installed in most rooms to let in natural sunlight, which bathes the house in a warm glow. The house is situated in the busy Boppstrasse street, with an exciting assortment of restaurants and bars to explore.

This modern apartment has been tastefully designed and maintained in great condition. Location wise, the apartment is just an 8-minute walk from Mainz’s central railway station, which becomes even shorter since the hosts allow you to borrow their bicycles. The station serves trains that go to various points of interest nearby, including the nearby vineyards, the Rhine Valley, and even the Frankfurt Airport. By bicycle, speed down to Mainz’s charming old town within 10 minutes.

This cozy apartment accommodates 2 guests. Location wise, the apartment is only a stone’s throw from the nearest train station. If you are intending to drive around Mainz, it is possible to park at a nearby football station free of charge. Alternatively, just head out to one of the two bus stations in the vicinity to explore the city by Mainz’s efficient public transport. As the host cautions, the apartment is on the 4th floor in a storey of flats that has no elevator service, so be prepared to get a sweat on if you have a huge suitcase to lug up the stairs.
Nice Flat in mainz 4th floor without elevator
This cozy apartment fits up to 2 guests, with the option of adding on an extra air mattress. Start the day right with a cup of coffee from the host’s coffee machine, and then head out to explore Mainz from the train station near the apartment. From the said train station, you can even take a 20-minute train ride to get to Frankfurt Airport, or a 40-minute ride to reach Frankfurt City.
nice SEPERATE ROOM +coffee, 5min to CITY / STATION
This sleek, modern apartment fits up to 5 guests, allowing a whole family or group of friends to enjoy a stay with plenty of space for all. Other perks of staying in the apartment include a whirlpool bathtub, something you probably won’t find in most vacation rentals. The apartment is centrally located, with bus stations and train stations in the vicinity. If you’re traveling by car, you will be able to park for free at the sheltered parking lot in the building.
Breahtaking view in a very modern flat downtown!
This stylish apartment is only available for 1 guest at a time, and only women can stay here, according to the host’s rules. If you’re traveling around Mainz alone and need a cozy, safe place to stay, this is perfect. The apartment is situated in the historic quarters of Mainz, providing a glimpse into the architecture of another time. In fact, you’ll get a direct view, from the apartment, of a very beautiful church. There’s plenty to do here, with parks, stores, and dining options within easy walking distance.
