We went to a classical music concert in the church. It was good but we would have been better if we went for more expensive seats

I was in town on business and a co-worker told me about this church. When I had some free time, I took the train into Mainz from Wiesbaden and took the walk to the church passing Shillerplatz on the way. I was not disappointed in the church. An amazing place and worth the walk.

The windows are definitely the primary attraction for this church. It was a little overcast on the day I visited, but the windows were definitely still impressive. The post cards in the back of the church give descriptions of the various scenes in multiple languages on them. The post cards (and other cards) are actually quite nice. This was the... More

This church is stunning and so peaceful. Marc Chagall did an amazing job on the windows in this church in Mainz. Must see in my opinion. Its an easy walk from the Gutenberg Museum in Mainz.

Number one thing I liked about St. Stephen's Church was the experience of peace. No big crowds to jostle through. It was lovely being bathed in a sea of blue and remarkable that Chagall designed and painted these marvels in his 90s! The last window was finished when he was 98 years old and then he died a few months... More

This church is definitely a highlight of any visit to Mainz. The Chagall windows are stunning and peaceful. We were there in the late afternoon when it wasn't particularly sunny - it would be interesting to have the luxury of coming back multiple times to see the windows in different light conditions. There is also a very impressive-looking organ that... More

Thanks to Marc Chagall, this is a truly divine space. The Chagall stained glass windows are superb - from the abstract leaf shapes on the side walls, to the bible stories behind the altar. We spent an hour here just looking at the windows and sitting in quiet contemplation and prayer. It is one of the most beautiful church interiors... More
