A visit at this church is highly recommended. The Marc Chagall windows are amazing as well as the Madonna statue.

I am not religious but I love this church during a sunny day, the blue light because of the Chagall windows is gorgeous. Go there an d have a look. Church was burned down during 2. world war and rebuild. The church is simple but with the Chagall windows one of my favorite and worth to visit.

This church is worth a visit. The signature blue windows were made by the Jewish artist Marc Chagall. A more 'modern' church if compared to the others. You can walk into any of the churches. Photos are allowed but without flash.

Truly a unique church. The stained glass is not your typical church stained glass. Instead of just telling a story, it is a lighting technique. It gives a beautiful glow the the interior. There was an orchestra practicing when we were there. Not really a church to wander around in. Just sit and enjoy the light.

For lovers of churches, old buildings or history. This is probably a good stop. The Cathedral was better. This church was a bit out of the way from other areas. The stained glass is what stood out for me. Photos don't do it justice. There were some interesting buildings nearby that were also interesting, it give a little bit of... More

it is a ten minute uphill walk from Market and away from old town. The blue stain-glass windows are breathtaking.

Definitely worth a peek. The windows are really pretty. There was a concert going on when I went in, very suggestive!

Mainz is relatively small , but there are couple of things you definitely need to see! and St Stephan's Church is definitely one of them! Famous "Chagall" windows - they make the atmosphere there so special, you will see it once you step in.

Try and get sunny day to look at the famous Chagal blue windows. If you catch the light just right then they really are a stunning sight
