Travel Insider Tips for Mainz-Kastel
Mainz-Kastel was formerly a district of the city of Mainz (Mainz vacation rentals | Mainz travel guide), until the public administration by the city of Wiesbaden (Wiesbaden vacation rentals | Wiesbaden travel guide) was decided on August 10, 1945. The reason for this had been the easy control of the Allied Occupation Zones in Germany, where the Rhine formed the border between the American sector and the French sector. Mainz-Kastel faces the city of Mainz on the opposite shore of the Rhine river, and connects Wiesbaden with downtown Mainz with a bridge. Adolphus Busch, founder of Anheuser-Busch, was born in Kastel (now Mainz-Kastel) in 1839.

More about the History of Mainz-Kastel
Mainz-Kastel was founded about 11 BC. At that time, the Romans built a wooden bridge across the Rhine connecting Moguntiacum (Mainz) with a castle on the right bank of the river. The wooden construction was replaced by a stone bridge in 71, which lasted until about 406. From this time the remains of a Roman triumphal arch were found in Mainz-Kastel, built around 19 A.D.
