Cathedral and Diocesan Museum

Cathedral and Diocesan Museum

Important artistic treasures from over 1,000 years of history of the Mainz archdiocese are shown here in a historical setting.

The Cathedral and Diocesan Museum is housed in the rooms around Mainz Cathedral's late-Gothic cloister. World-famous early-Gothic figurines, such as those of 'the Blessed' and 'the Damned' taken from the former western rood screen, can be seen in the vaulted halls, which date from the time of the Swabian dynasty in the Middle Ages. Exquisite Ottonian manuscript illuminations, as well as vividly coloured late-Gothic tapestries, are among the Cathedral Museum's best-known treasures.

Opening times:

Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm, Saturday & Sunday 11am-6pm

Events

Rhineland-Palatinate's Summer of Culture takes place every year from 1 May to 3 October and features well over 200 projects covering all kinds of different cultural aspects. The theme is revised annually to reflect new focuses for the content, and the venue for the grand opening also changes every year. A large cultural festival on the first weekend in May offers families their first peek at the summer's programme of events.

The Summer of Culture is extremely wide-reaching in its scope, with events held across the state covering cultural, religious, artistic and social themes. In early 1992 the Rhineland-Palatinate state government announced the staging of the first Rhineland-Palatinate Summer of Culture, the aim of which was to increase people's awareness of the region's attractive cultural programme. Rural areas were particularly targeted in the hope of stimulating people's interest and of spreading pleasure in art and culture, in discussion and debate. What the organisers had – and continue to have – in mind was a sort of 'citizens' movement for culture'. And the Summer of Culture is, in fact, characterised by the large number of small projects and ideas at its core that were themselves developed out of local or regional initiatives. With almost 250 events including concerts, readings, exhibitions, children's activities, theatre and much more, the festival is a marvellous melting pot of people and ideas.
