Mainz, the capital of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany, boasts historical buildings, monuments and museums which are only too happy to welcome you and enchant you with their historical attributes. If you get near enough and look closely enough, you will learn quite a bit about the 2000-year-old city. The Roman temple, the Royal Palace, the Cathedral and Marc Chagall‘s blue stained-glass window await you! With its strategically perfect location on the river Rhine, Mainz has been many things to many people: the Roman Castrum Moguntiacum, the Jewish Magenza, the residence and capital of the Prince Electors, an archbishopric, a university town and a fortress town of the German Nation´s Holy Roman Empire as well as the Mainz Republic. These are all epochs of “Golden Mainz” as the city has been known since its heyday in the Middle Ages.
Schloss Waldthausen is centrally and quietly situated in the Lennebergwald recreational area just outside the gates of Mainz. It offers a unique atmosphere in the midst of nature that is ideal for this workshop as well as the exchange within the community. Of course there is a good connection to the city of Mainz, so that the participants have the opportunity to get to the city easily.
