The iconic Chagall windows cast a serene blue light into the little church and bathe it in beauty. A special note of thanks to the friendly man at the gift-shop table at the back of the church, who kindly provided detailed explanations of what we...More

This church and surroundings are beautiful and powerful. If you have time to visit museum and walk through (minimum 1,5 hours), you'll be impressed with history.

The Chagall Windows are the main attraction in this church on the hill and because it’s well signposted in town it’s easy to find. It’s so impressive and awe inspiring. And even better than the little church in the UK with similar windows. There isn’t...More

Everyone mentions the windows and for good reason - they are stunning! They cast beautiful blue light into the church and it’s pretty incredible. Definitely a must see in Mainz.

What a wonderful Cathedral! Located a little past the main square of Mainz. Be sure and see the 9 windows done by Marc Chagall located towards the front of the church.

Being a fan of Marc Chagall for many years, I wanted to visit this church to view the glass windows. Mostly in blue tones, the glass provides a quiet, somber atmosphere to the room. The church is located up the hill from the Schiller Platz...More

I have to admit we decided to visit Mainz mainly for the Marc Chagall stain glass windows. It's just around 40 minutes from Frankfurt with the S-Bahn travelling every 30 minutes, but actually there are two lines you can use so the transport is perfect....More

Did a short visit when I was in Mainz for work. The church was really quiet, perhaps as it was a Friday noon. The window panes were beautiful, even when there was no sunlight shining in due to the rainy and cloudy weather.

Beautiful stained glass windows but other than that an average church. Not sure how this is the #1 attraction in Mainz. Worth checking out if in the area but not worth going out of your way to see it.
