Founded in 1477 during the era of Johannes Gutenberg and reopened in 1946 after a 150-year hiatus, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) owes much to the man whose name it bears and his achievements.With about 35,000 students from about 130 nations, it is one of the ten largest universities in Germany. JGU houses most of its academic disciplines on one main campus, including the Mainz University Medical Center, the School of Music, and the Mainz Academy of Arts.
Mainz has cosmopolitan feel, with museums and cathedrals of various architectural styles dotting the city. Mainz' St. Martin Cathedral dominates the skyline and has been the center of the city for many centuries. The roots of the present building can be traced back to the year 975.
