This Church/chapel is very nice from outside, however the inner part isn´t really surprising. I would rather recommand to visit the Dom and the hofkirche instead of this one.

St. Mary's Church has a unique red and white exterior. It is one of the few remaining German/Romanesque High Gothic churches left in Germany. It is on the Market Square. Built onto the side of the church are shops. Supposedly this is like it was in the Middle Ages. There are 3 doors to this church. At the south side... More

St. Mary's Chapel, which is late Gothic, had to be reconstructed like everything else in this beautiful city that should never have been a target of bombing. The job the people did is wonderful, even leaving in place certain features to show you what couldn't be replaced or rebuilt. The interior is as unique as the exterior because this one... More

The outside of the Chapel is more exciting than the inside, but it is good for a short visit in combination with the market square and the other sites of the old city of Würzburg.

Started in 1377, it was finished in 1481 as a symbol of the self-confident town men. Inside are tombstones of Franconian knights and Wurzburg citizens such as Konrad von Schaumberg (by Tilman Riemenschneider) and Balthasar Neumann. At the portal are Riemenschneider`s world famous sandstone sculptures of Adam and Eve

The church is not a must see but if you have time its worth a visit. The internal design is amazing and there is so much detail in the workmanship.

This is a lovely church, with Adam & Eve on the portal to the market place rather than apostles or Jesus and Mary, surprisingly. Rather lovely. Do like the shops still built onto the church as in Middle Ages, where you can still have a coffee or buy flowers/souvenirs.

Just sit back and take it all in. This place was nearly destroyed by American bombs in 1945 and was rebuilt by the locals. It is steeped in tradition and feels peaceful.

St. Mary's Church/Marienkapelle is easily recognizable from the river due to its unusual red and white exterior. It sits right on the Wurzburg market square beside the Haus zum Falken, the 2 story light yellow house with rococo decor on its exterior. For me the reason for my visit was to see the stone sculptures around the doors. There are... More

Even if we could not get inside (they were closing when we got there), it was still a nice architectural monument to admire. Tall and colorful, it cought our eye and we took our time to take some pics. One thing seemed weird - there are several small shops at the bottom of the building - you don't expect that... More
