"Hi, it was suggested I come to the wine festival in Hochheim the weekend of July 10. I cannot find any information about where to go or events that might happen that weekend. We will be in Mainz and were told we could take a 15 minute bus ride. What is the best day and time to come? And where can I find the bus schedule? I understand there might be bands playing also. THANKS!" (posted 05/25/2016)

Hello, the Wine Festival will take place from Friday, July 8 to Monday, July 11 in the old town of Hochheim instead. I suppose that start the individual activities on Friday afternoon and on Saturday and Sunday from the late morning, Monday likely after noon. There are a number of individual activities that are spread all over the old town, probably like the music groups, maybe there for the music but also a bigger stage. On the last day, a Monday, there are completed late at night a large fireworks that will be sure to see also from Mainz.
