Augustinerstrasse

Holiday Travel Guide
Augustinerstrasse

Stroll through Mainz’s Old Town along this pedestrianized street, lined with shopping boutiques and a remarkably preserved assortment of colorful historic buildings.

Take a step back in time along the Augustinerstrasse in Mainz. The street, open only to foot traffic, runs straight through the German city’s Old Town. Although you could walk the length of the Augustinerstrasse in less than 10 minutes, take your time to explore and appreciate the many historic buildings lining the street.

In World War II, bombing destroyed many of the old buildings in Mainz, which makes the historic structures remaining along the Augustinerstrasse all the more special. Admire half-timbered homes, colorful sandstone arches and ornate rococo details.

The Augustinerstrasse connects two of Mainz’s main streets: Neutorstrasse to the south and Leichhof to the north. The road has been a main route in the city since the Middle Ages and has been widened and straightened over the years. The Augustinerstrasse was one of the city’s main market streets in the 16th century. Today, it has been revived as a shopping and dining destination for locals and visitors. Search for antiques, souvenirs made by Mainz craftspeople and other unique finds in its many boutiques. Sit in a café or wine bar and watch the city unfold around you. Enjoy local German fare at one of the street’s many restaurants. Discover quaint destinations along the narrow side streets off the Augustinerstrasse.

The magnificent Augustinerkirche, or St. Augustine's Church, dominates the street. After admiring its ornate Baroque façade, step inside to check out the detailed ceiling frescoes that illustrate the life of St. Augustine. These works are original, as St. Augustine’s Church survived World War II largely unharmed.

Find St. Martin’s Cathedral just a few steps off the Augustinerstrasse northern end. The Roman Catholic cathedral has dominated the historic part of Mainz for over 1,000 years. At the southern end of the Augustinerstrasse, continue walking for a few minutes until you reach the ruins of a Roman theater.

Visit the Augustinerstrasse to experience Mainz as it appeared several centuries ago. Give yourself plenty of time to explore its shops and restaurants. Don’t leave without peeking into St. Augustine’s.

"The hotel is in a great location. they offered a breakfast box for 12 euros which was too expensive. The hotel is old. My card reader on my door did not work the second day. So had to be escorted to have them use a master key. That was an inconvenience."
