A beautiful place to visit and walk along. I recommande for couples, family or best friends. It is a pleasant introduction in art, architecture and some historical grounds.

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

St. Mary's Chapel is one of the famous visit spot in Wurzburg. A nice church to visit if you have plenty of time in Wurzburg.

St. Mary's Chapel was built between 1377-1479 and remains the finest late gothic building in Würzburg. The picturesque façade is really amazing.This old building is particularly notable for its magnificent doorways. Once in the interior one can visit the tomb of Balthasar Neumann, as well as a statue of Konrad von Schaumberg, who died in 1499. During the day the... More

A simple red/white colored block with a tower. No big architectural performance from outside as well as the inside. The market square and the small market with it's stalls is even more attractive than this building.

set in the fine town square, old red St mary's was the least obliterated of the WW2 church 'massacre' and thus the least reconstructed. You walk into the square from any angle and it rises abruptly and welcoming before you. this is a churchgoer's church and it rivals the larger 'Doms' in its preserved historicity and in its piety. The... More

Just as we've expected, Marienkapelle is beautiful inside and outside. It is also very easy to locate right at the Marktplatz.

From the red and white exterior adorned with sculptures by Tilman Riemenschneider to the unique red and green stonework columns and vaulting inside, this church is unlike most others in Germany, an embodiment of the place Wuerzburg held in the Churches along the valley of the river Main. Thoug it is a small church in comparison toe St Kilian and... More
