According to a German legend, river Rhine hides Nibelung's gold

“Rheingold” is hidden in River Rhine

Throughout history, Mainz has been a place for business and, above all, for innovation – be it Gutenberg’s printing press in 1440, which revolutionised education and literacy in Europe, or BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine in 2020, which played a major role in fighting the global pandemic. Today, Mainz – as an integral part of the Frankfurt-Rhein-Main metropolitan region – is home to some of the largest German companies, as well as to the countless tech, biotech and fintech start-ups.

With all that in mind and being only 15 minutes’ drive away from one of the largest airports in Europe (FRA, Frankfurt-Rhein-Main), we believe Mainz is the perfect home for the European Cloud Summit.

Our venue: Rheingoldhalle, Mainz

Rheingoldhalle Mainz is not only one of the most famous conference venues in Germany but also has a very special history and reputation. Built directly on the banks of the Rhine (the views are spectacular), and named after the most famous German legend (“The Nibelungs”, and their gold which is hidden somewhere in the river Rhine), Rheingoldhalle has played host to some of the largest political, business and cultural events in Germany and the world.

Fully renovated in the past two years, Rheingoldhalle offers everything needed for an event such as the European Cloud Summit: spectacular halls and session rooms, and enough space to comfortably host the expo and all the other social activities.

How to get there?

Mainz is positioned centrally in Germany and in Europe, close to Frankfurt Rhine Main Airport, one of the largest European airport hubs.

BY AIR – FRANKFURT RHINE MAIN AIRPORT (FRA)

Frankfurt Rhine Main Airport is the second largest airport in Europe, and easily reachable from everywhere in the world. From the airport, there are train connections to the Mainz Central Station (Hauptbahnhof) every few minutes. More details about train and local transport connections can be found in the DB Navigator app. The train ride to Mainz central station takes approximately 20 minutes.

Alternatively, you can take a taxi from Frankfurt Airport, but please be aware of high fares.

BY TRAIN

Mainz is a railway hub, and thus very well connected with high-speed ICE trains to every part of Germany. Alternatively, you can arrive at Frankfurt Central Station, Frankfurt Airport Station, or Wiesbaden Central Station, and use local public transport from there to downtown Mainz.

USING TAXIS

Alternatively, you can take taxis in Mainz. We suggest using the FreeNow app (Apple App Store, Google Play Store), which is used by the majority of the taxy companies in Germany.
