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

The figures of Adam and Eve, were made ​​by sculptor Tilman Riemenschneider in 1493 are placed at the south portal. The originals are on display in the museum Mainfränkisches today, they have been replaced by copies in 1975. There is the tomb of the knight Konrad von Schaumberg by Riemenschneider also. Internal of the church is very bright because of... 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
