Mainz is the capital of the state of Rheinland-Pfalz. It's a lively university town with friendly locals renowned for their community spirit, whether it be in supporting the local soccer team, Mainz 05, enjoying wine tavern culture in the cobbled Old Town, or partying at Karneval (carnival). Today's city was built on the site of a Roman citadel dating back to 38 BC, and given its central location at the confluence of the Main and Rhine rivers, it's not surprising that Mainz has always been an important trading center, rebuilt time and again in the wake of wars.
