This church has been renovated/restored and it is beautiful! It is located in the market square and is a delight to see.

This is a beautfiul Gothic church in downtown Wuerzburg. Definitely include it in your tour of the city. It is not huge in scale but is intense in what it packs in. This is one of my favorite places in the city.

Aside from the unique coloring, the church is otherwise pretty average, except for the stunningly beautiful statues (copies of the originals) of Adam and Eve by Tilman Riemenschneider. The history is much more interesting, as the church was built atop the old Jewish quarter.

Imposing late Gothic hall church of the citizenship. 1377 Construction, 1480 supplemented with Tower. The chapel was built in reconciliation of citizenship. The building remained without parish church rights, so a Chapel. Also the "Kramläden" (shops) which already existed in 1437 are still there. In the spy-glass in the portal show decorative plastic construction decoration: figures of Adam and Eve (Tilman Riemenschneider) in 1975 replaced by copies; the originals are in the Mainfränkischen Museum. After the fire in 1945 the intire roof and wooden Interior burned out completely, the interior was completely refurbished. On the altars are four paintings from 1514. Silver Madonna from 1680 above the altar of the Northern Corridor (J Kilian), in the aisles many tombs of Frankish Knights and Würzburg citizens, including the tomb of † 1499 Konrad von Schaumberg (Riemenschneider). At the Market Portal a bronze plaque refers to the tomb of the great baroque architect Balthasar Neumann.

We always love that the churches are mostly free and so beautiful. Although Marienkapelle is old, it has a modern feel. It may be small but packs a punch and is worth seeing. There are sculptures at either end of the chapel of the Anunciation and Adam and Eve. A pretty church.
