Famous for stained glass windows designed by Chagall so that we visited there. It's quite beautiful. Getting through the historical entrance door, windows are breathtaking.

Beautiful church with fantastic windows designed by Chagall. The church is situated in a calm area and it is very relaxing just to walk around the church and have a good look at Mainz.

The church has magnificent stained glass windows. The rest of the church looks pale by comparison to the windows. Worth it just to see the windows. Hope for a sunny day.
