Its architecture calls your attention so much you will always turn your head at it when passing nearby. Great colors and atractive lines.

I think this might be one of the best sights in the city, especially the outside. The architecture is fantastic and its size is quite impressive!

The church looks like newly painted, beautiful red and white colours. At the entrance Adam and Eve, Tilman Riemenschneider the famous sculpture made the statues. Inside there is nothing special. Around the church, little shops, as it was already in the middle age, the smallest coffee shop in Würzburg is also here.

St Mary's Chapel stands in the Market Square surrounded by stalls. It certainly make s statement with its red and white walls, it's exterior statues, and with Adam and Eve in traditional undress guarding the entry. The interior is less impressive with the main focus being on the modern abstract windows at the front, but it is a pleasant place... More

St. Mary's Chapel is located right on market square in the middle of town and an actual stones throw from the catchedral. While the interior is nothing special, it has great statues on the outside.

Be sure to visit this beautiful chapel just off the main market square. We sat in the back and enjoyed a very peaceful service. No one seemed to mind. Do be respectful of worshippers. This is not the kind of place to come and go. If you must go, be sure to leave only if people have risen to sing.... More

Marienkapelle has one of the loveliest exteriors I've seen. Built in the late Gothic era it towers over the marketplace and its vibrant color makes it stand out as far away as from the Marian Fortress, sitting high above the city. Two things about it intrigued me. First, the Riemenschneider statues (copies) at several points of the exterior, especially Adam... More

Unusual colour Gothic chapel and certainly worth a visit. Certainly not as grand as many we visited but has some very interesting sculptures inside that are much older than the reconstruction of this chapel. Lovely lead light windows.

Würzburg is an episcopal city, but even back in the 14th century the citizens wanted a church independent of the bishop, so they built St. Mary's (on the grounds of a destroyed synagogue). I was raised protestant myself, so I cannot follow all those catholic niceties personally, but our guide told us that St. Mary's even today is not a... More

Any mention or photos of the Falkenhaus of Würzburg would not miss the looming block of red and white church that is Marienkapelle. True to its Gothic architecture, the details of the decorating sculptures as well as those stuccoes adorning the tower and ribbed exterior were impressive. And for such a marvellous church of this size to be named a... More
