Mainz Cathedral and Diocesan Museum
The Cathedral and Diocesan Museum is located in the Mainz Cathedral's two-story, late-Gothic cloister and in the former chapter house. With more than 3,000m² of exhibition space, it is the second-largest museum of its kind in Germany – presenting works of art from over two millennia. For many centuries, Mainz cathedral treasury ranked among the finest in the Western world. Produced between the 14th and the 18th century, the surviving inventories describe a wealth of liturgical instruments and paraments. The arched halls, typical of their Middle Age origins, provide the ideal setting for these masterpieces. Favorite attractions for many visitors such as the majestic
