“Hard to miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

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 entrance to enter will give you not that much, Würzburg has nicer churches to offer.

“Very unique exterior”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

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.

“lovely Gothic church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

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 were able to see the interior . it is not as majestic as the other famous churches in Wurzburg but still it is quite interesting

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

The Marienkapelle is lovely both inside and out. It occupies a prominent place at one side of the market square and unlike the other churches in the city is Gothic style.

“So beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Lovely church very peaceful feel. The stained glass windows and organ are magnificent but the most outstanding feature is the artwork.
