A very successful experimental program with real photons has been achieved in 20 years of operation at the Mainz Microtron (MAMI) facility. The different detector setups, like DAPHNE, TAPS and the Crystal Ball are centered around the tagged photon facility the so-called Glasgow Tagger. From the rich spectrum of results only a few highlights will be discussed here, the proton polarizabilities, the pion polarizabilities, pion photoproduction close to the pion threshold and in the Δ(1232)-resonance region.
