A baroque escapee from Bavaria it seems. Mighty facade towards the street but a colourful and playful interior.

Of all the church's in Mainz, this one has the best artwork. While the main church in the main square is bigger an older, St Augustine's is much more pretty with plenty to look at.

It is easy to walk past this building, situated as it is in a row of shops and restaurants. The outer facade is non-descript, even boring, and gives no impression of the beauty behind the front doors. As soon as you leave the bustle of the street you find yourself in a place of peace and simple beauty. The stained... More

Lovely church right on one of the main pedestrian steets in Mainz, worth a visit. We did around Easter and the church was beautifully decorated

Peaceful and ornate! Tucked away on Mainz's walking street, it really was an amazing building with stained glass windows, and sell the trappings of the church.

Old church with historic architecture in old town Mainz. Small streets and shops. Somewhat hidden if you don't recognize it as you walk down the street.

Don't miss this! it's a small church in the Altstadt (Old Town) -- you could almost walk right by it if you didn't know to look. It's an absolutely gorgeous example of Baroque! But know that there will be beggars at the entrance -- it's just the way it is (and has been for centuries!). But they won't bother you.

This building belongs in an Art Museum. It is simply spectacular. Everything that is not made of carved wood or marble is leaved in gold or covered in murals. It simply takes your breath away. It may not be as large or as old as the Dom, but wow...do not miss out.

While heading towards Augustinerkeller restaurant, we walked past this small red standstone church. Peeping insdie, we found the Barouque interior rather beautiful, especially the ceiling fresco. It's a short walk from the Mainz cathedral. Worth a visit.

Tucked into a pedestrianized shopping area is this lovely Baroque church. While many baroque churches are filled with overblown and bombastic art, this one is a light-filled and charming expression of baroque taste. The ceiling paintings and the organ are lovely. While in the neighborhood, don't miss the set of four of five old half-timbered buildings that managed to survive... More
