It's worth the extra trek up the hill to step into this church filled with stained glass windows designed and installed by Marc Chagall. Check out the wikipedia listing and the youtube video for more information.

We have determined we are not Chagall fans. That was really the only reason to visit this church was to see his glass work. The blue is pretty though.

This was not my first time to St Stephan. My son was baptized here, so it has special place in my heart. The stained glass is awe inspiring. Not far from Altstadt; however, if on foot keep in mind all uphill. Strassenbahn has service from Schiller Platz and up the hill to the first stop. Definite must see.

St Stephan's is a late gothic church, most of which was built in the early 1300s. Badly damaged by heavy bombing during World War 2, it was rebuilt in the late 60s. Some of its most notable features are the truly stunning stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall. Chagall was Jewish and he intended his work at St Stephan's... More

Not a very large church, but worth a few minutes to marvel at the magnificent and unique stained glass windows. The colours were different shades of blues and greens.

The inside of the church is breathtakingly beautiful. The blue colors of the windows are astounding, and there is a deep sense of peace in this place.
