Before catching our train to Munich, we walked around Mainz to take pictures.
If you ever plan to take the train to Munich the day before Oktoberfest, be sure to make a reservation on the train ahead of time. We stood or sat in the aisle on the floor for a 4 hour leg of the trip. I'm only glad that the train went as fast as 300 kilometers per hour or it would have been even longer.
Upon finding our accommodations, we boarded the three person elevator and checked into our home for the next few days. Up next, Oktoberfest!
