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

You can see this chapel from most of the old town and situated right next to the market places you will most likely pass it anway. And that is what I do recommend in this case. While the outside is pretty spectacular (and can even be blinding on a sunny day) the interior is pretty bland. So using the side... More

This church can not be missed. One can see the Virgin Mary at the top of the steeple from nearly anywhere in town. It is right in the market square. The interior was nice, but not notable.

The Marian Chapel is a good example of the Gothic style and the only one that we have seen in Wurzburg . It is hard to miss since it is located right beside the Market Square . The front entrance was closed when we were there but we found that the side entrance beside the market was open so we... More

The Marienkapelle is lovely both inside and out. It occupies a prominent place at one side of the market square and unlike the other churches in the city is Gothic style.

Lovely church very peaceful feel. The stained glass windows and organ are magnificent but the most outstanding feature is the artwork.

This is a beautfiul Gothic church in downtown Wuerzburg. Definitely include it in your tour of the city. It is not huge in scale but is intense in what it packs in. This is one of my favorite places in the city.

Aside from the unique coloring, the church is otherwise pretty average, except for the stunningly beautiful statues (copies of the originals) of Adam and Eve by Tilman Riemenschneider. The history is much more interesting, as the church was built atop the old Jewish quarter.
