“Monster twin towers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

This church was badly wrecked in WW2. It has taken some 50 years to bring it back to its former glory, the interior now a riot of colour and gold again. Well worth walking from the Stadtmitte to see it.

“Quite Stunning Church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Stunning church beside a main road, not far from the Hauptbahnhof . Had not heard of it beforehand and found it a very pleasant stop off on the way down to the Rheine bridge area..In any smaller city it would be a main attraction . The organ has been fairly recently renovated and we thought the church offered a warm , welcoming feel. The church has a grand and yet visitor friendly atmosphere . Well worth a second visit or more.

“Beautiful baroque interiors.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

Very interesting catholic church for a quick visit . It is historically important place in Mainz. For a tourist it is mainly a church with a very pretty interior - eye pleasing. It has a nice organ as well.

“Attractive from the outside, but not much from the inside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

This church was rebuilt after the war. It uses the classic red sandstone of the area and has attractive twin spires. Unfortunately, there is nothing much to see inside, so if you are in the area, take a look, but don't expect much of interest except for the external façade.
