Beautiful windows and wonderful cloister (through the glass doors). No info/signs in English that I could see but easy enough to look up on your phone. They recommend 1€ for church upkeep but this is voluntary. Small shop selling postcards, books etc.

Beautiful church with fantastic windows designed by Chagall. The church is situated in a calm area and it is very relaxing just to walk around the church and have a good look at Mainz.

Take the historic streets to the numerous stone stairs, to arrive outside at the back of the church. This is an enjoyable scenic route, observing homes and businesses in buildings of the medieval time period. After you climb the hill of stairs, you can walk...More

The church has magnificent stained glass windows. The rest of the church looks pale by comparison to the windows. Worth it just to see the windows. Hope for a sunny day.

I spent about an hour, and purchased the English guide book. But the windows could be quickly viewed in about 20 minutes.
