Awesome
Sep 2019 • Family
When the light comes through on these magnificent blue windows the site is awesome.
The history behind it very interesting as most ihave links with the war and a Yewish link ( designing the windows) Quite a hard walk up the hill if memory serves and one of the few places where there is a toilet reasonably near at hand. A must visit

Amazing stained glass
Jan 2020
Amazing stained glass, really amazing. It is interesting that for many years interesting stained glass windows were not made in churches. Amazing stained glass windows were created in the Middle Ages. These Marc Chagal are from the 20th century and also amazing.

OMG - those windows
Nov 2019
The walk from our hotel near the station wasn't bad nor was our walk to the old town or city center. However, the hotel did give us good advice on which streets were best for the walk.

The windows were out of this world and a gentleman that was on hand to answer questions and to sell postcards was delightful

Highly recommended.

This Cathedral is really impressive and you can see it from all over the city. It stands in the middle of a very beautiful square.

Stunning stained glass art
Oct 2019
This is worth seeing if only to see the thoughtful detail in the work. There is enough information explaining the history of the work that there is no need to purchase the guide books.

Unique Church Exprience
Jan 2020
The stained glass windows really illuminate the church and make for a special, holy experience. The intricacy and details behind the windows is amazing. The visit during the Christmas season was also special as all the decorations were still present.

Chagall Stained Glass

WOW! We were told about this hidden gem from a woman at our Frankfurt Hotel! It is a must see if you are in the area. A little walk from the Mainz Train Station!

Stunning!

Beautiful windows. The interior of the church was dim, but even on a cloudy, drizzly day we were able to enjoy the artistry of these beautiful windows.

Beautiful
Nov 2019
This is a beautiful church but very dark inside when we went. LOTS of historic biblical artifacts. Last time I was here was 2014 and it was being restored then and is STILL being restored. A beautiful church in the beautiful Mainz Square.
