Mainz was a centre of Jewish theology and learning in Central Europe during the Middle Ages. Experience the long history of Jewish Mainz from the oldest legible Jewish tombstone in Europe from 1049 to the impressive award-winning modern synagogue next to the remains of the old synagoge.
In the Landesmuseum (State Museum) we will see the oldest legible Jewish tombstone in Europe from 1049 and the Torah rolls. Nearby we will see the area of the former Jewish Ghetto.
Near the Fischtorbrunnen we will see some of the famous Stolpersteine ("Stumbling Stones") and we will see the Nagelsaule ("Nail Column") on the Market Square and hear about Jewish life in Mainz during the First World War.
