A beautiful church with stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall as his contribution to German-Jewish reconciliation. Overwhelmingly blue, but with altar windows in his particular style. There is something very uplifting in a visit to this unique church. The original church dates back to...More

don't miss this site as you are exploring Mainz. It is less than 1/2 mile from the downtown (Dome). highly recommended, especially on a. sunny day to enjoy the lights through Chagall's painted windows.

During my walking tour of Mainz with friends, I was advised to look inside the St. Stephan’s church. A lovely interior with unique Chagall blue stained glass windows and an interesting history. While not as ornate as some other churches, worth a look see.

St. Stephan's Church is a really nice church in beautiful Mainz, but it's really not all that impressive when compared with other sites within the city or churches within Germany. Not really worth a separate visit.

The outside was under construction and you could not have imagined what was behind the tarps and scaffolding. It was an awesome, amazing surprise. You could feel the prayers of all who had been there.

Once in town and you like Chagall... just go. Try to visit early in the morning as the sun will shine directly through the east windows which makes your visit a special experience.

In Mainz, our AmaWaterways excursion takes us to St. Stephan's Church (Stephanskirche), badly damaged during the war. To complete its restoration, in 1973 Klaus Mayer, the parish priest, enlisted the aid of Jewish-Russian artist Marc Chagall (1887-1985), the master of colour and biblical themes. Mayer...More
