Amazing windows

You should consider visiting this church on a sunny day, sun shining through the colourful Chagall painted windows gives a breathtaking view!

We popped in during our free time at the Mainz Old Town. It's a nice high ceiling church, plain ceiling but with paintings on the walls and Chagall stained glass windows, and a nice long aisle.

Well, here it is all about the windows. The atmosphere they create in the church is magnificent. But do not overlook the beautiful cloister.

The Chagall windows are well worth the visit. Different than any church windows you will see in Europe. Be sure to sit for awhile and watch the light change. A short walk from the center square in the older section of Mainz.

Unassuming cathedral that is definitely worth the visit. Interesting architecture and stained glass windows. Very peaceful.

This is a beautiful church with stunning windows and charming presence. There are lots of churches in Europe but this one is definitely worth a visit.

Be certain to read the history of the Chagall windows. It is quite poignant. It is a bit of a "hike" to get there but well worth the effort.

Amazing Marc Chagall windows. Make sure to bring a pair of binoculars so you can really enjoy the detail.

The Chagall windows are stunning, and the new organ is gorgeous. I went twice, once in the morning to enjoy the windows, and saw an ad for an organ conert on Sunday night. I returned for the concert and had the pleasure of watching the light fade from those lovely windows while listening to great music.

The Chagall windows are really fabulous and the building itself with its cloisters is very interesting as well. Besides, the surrounding area is nice to walk around offering beautiful views .over the city
