New to the Mainz Christmas market? Make the most of your time here with this tour combining tasting and touring. With me as your guide, you'll enjoy sample-size portions of 12 of my favorite Christmas market dishes including hearty and savory mains, warming beverages and sweet treats. To work up hunger between courses, I'll take you to sites of interest in and around Mainz’s stunning market square.
Steps away from the mighty Rhine, in the shadow of a thousand year old cathedral, this 2.5 hour tour will acquaint you with the highlights of Mainz's vibrant past and shed light on why it’s such a great place to live today. You’ll learn how the history of the city can be summed up in four hats, and why the locals celebrate the anniversary of their cathedral twice. You’ll discover why the focal point of Mainz’s Christmas market, a five-tiered wooden pyramid, features a jester, a runner and a bespectacled cartoon character.
We’ll sample not only the most beloved treats available at Christmas markets widely across Germany, but also those typical to Mainz, including mulled wine produced by a local winery, succulent grilled pork, and Dinnele-Fladen, a Middle Ages forerunner to the pizza.
Other things to note
As we'll be outside in cold December weather most of the time, please dress warmly. The tour involves a considerable amount of walking; thus comfortable footwear is highly recommended.

As a freelance columnist covering events and travel destinations since 2004, I take pride in both my local and "big picture" knowledge of all things Europe. I've lived in Russia, Denmark, and Italy, and used each as a springboard for extensive regional exploration. For the past decade, I call an idyllic wine village south of Mainz home. As a certified "culture and wine ambassador" of the local Rheinhessen wine-making area, I’m up on the history of my adopted region and eager to show you what makes it so special. Years of experience as a tour manager in east Europe means you're in good hands.

We had an awesome experience with Karen. Karen considered our interests and found time to accommodate these within the tour. If your on a time limit Karen can accommodate but as we were not we had a full afternoon leading into the night experiencing different foods and local interests points of Mainz. We would highly recommend to anyone visiting this area to book a tour with Karen.

What an awesome experience! Karen was a fantastic host with a ton of information for travelers visiting Europe. We will definitely book another experience with Karen the next time we visit Mainz. She was fun, energetic and helpful during our tour and she made our first trip to a Christmas Market delicious and memorable. We can’t wait to go back!

Karen is an exceptional hostess and the Mainz Christmas Market tour was a lot of fun. I learned a lot about the city of Mainz and thoroughly enjoyed my first Christmas Market experience.

Touring the Mainz Christmas Market was a WONDERFUL experience! I had a 10-hour layover in Frankfurt. Karen was accommodating and flexible to my schedule to make sure that I was able to explore Mainz. She even helped me get back to the airport. The food was phenomenal, the architecture was incredible and the drinks were delicious. Karen created an itinerary that showed me the main parts of Mainz but also had enough flexibility to spend more time at places I found extra interesting. She even provided free tickets to check out a children’s theater production! All that said, the best part was being able to interact with Karen and hear her stories about traveling/living abroad and her knowledge about Germany and Europe. Do not hesitate to book this tour as you will leave with a life-long friend and one of the most genuine people I have ever met. Thank you so much, Karen. Keep shining. HIGHLY Recommend.

This was such a sweet way to spend my morning! I had so much fun walking around Mainz, learning a little history, checking out the sites, and sampling various treats. Karen really made the experience personable and she is so relatable. If I am ever in the area and Karen offers another experience I will definitely join!
