Mainz Shopping: 5 reviews and 6 photos

  Book Shops, Mainz
by antistar

As you might expect from a city that made the publishing of books possible there is a huge choice of book shops to wander around. I spotted four giant stores, including the enormous Gutenberg Buchhandlung pictured that seemed to stretch for an entire block along Grosse Bleiche. There was also another in the Roman Passage shopping arcade that seemed to take up an entire left side of the arcade (on both floors). The city probably rivals Oxford for the number of books on sale per capita.
