The church with the Chagall windows

This is where people go to see Chagall's blue Windows. As all windows are blue the whole interior looks very special. This is a great stop for people interested in art.

When in Mainz it is a must to see the cathedral and Printing museum but do the 10 minutes walk up to the St. Stephan and get the nice view of the town and excellent interior where gothic walls are combined with 20th-century windows. Take care to check the opening hours.

Like all the other churches in Mainz, this one is beautiful on the outside and inside. I enjoyed admiring the details that are inside the church and the peacefulness it provided.

The peace and serenity in his church was amazing. Even though there were flocks of visitors, the quiet and calmness remained.The Marc Chagal windows are impressive but our visit was capped by being able to listen to the organist rehearse. A visit is recommended and well worth the effort of walking the hill.

As soon as one enters the Church, one is enveloped in a soft, cool, blue light that seems almost ephemeral. Then you cast your eyes towards the apse and behold: the most magnificent depictions of Old and New Testament tales in wondrous blues and other hues, the work of the Russian master artist, Marc Chagal. They quite simply take your... More

The stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall make this church a MUST SEE. The church is located on a hill within walking distance from the old town, but completely worth the trip.

For me this is a definite visit when in Mainz. Its a nice quiet church and the blue Chagall stained glass windows produce a blue glow in the church which is nothing short of mesmerizing.

What can you say about a beautiful work as this Church. The adornments are worth the trip. Take time to learn about the history of the church a bit as well.

It was a bit of a walk from the Dom with a hill or incline shall I call it to get to the Church! The stained glass windows were very pretty to see, but I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful organ that was along side one of the Windows. However I did not book a tour nor do I think... More

The mosaic glass has stories behind so don't miss the stories while you visit this church. The front door is very specia, too.
