This church is filled with artwork, a few crypts, and so much to look at. It is both visually stunning and a bit overwhelming at the same time. I found it was best to wander all over taking it all in and then to just sit and meditate on the grandeur of it all. It's full of wealth and history,... More

In the main downtown of Old Mainz you will see the magnificent façade of St. Augustine's Church. The church has an impressive gilded interior as I understand all original. The ceiling frescoes depict the life of St. Augustine and the history of the order in Mainz since the 13th Century.

GORGEOUS! yes! WAY more colorful than other churches. It wasn't fully open today, 5-14-15, just the outer doors, but you can see by the photos how beautiful it is.

We saw a lot of churches and Cathedrals on our tour up the Rhine. St. Augustine was one church we stumbled onto on our own. A beautiful place to visit.

St. Augustine's church is hidden on Augustinerstrasse and is easy to miss as it blends in a little, with the surrounding buildings on the outside. Inside it has what has been the most detailed and colorful artwork of the churches I've seen in Mainz so far. Very beautiful to spend a few minutes in, faxing around. If your taking a... More

Many people go to the mainz cathedral due to all the hype in the square and stuff going on around the mainz cathedral. Although this is a true hidden gem. I don't speak German although I accidentally fell upon this church when traveling in Germany. A mass was going on and the organist playing was just as beautiful as the... More

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
