A beautiful church

An unexpected find on the way from Romanische Theater station to the Dom. Different from typical churches in Germany. Beautiful ceiling paintings. Worth visiting.

The Augustiner Kirche is located Close to the Dom and in the middle of the old part of Mainz. You could first visit the open market with colourful flowers and vegetables, have a glass of local wine there with Fleischwurst (Special Kind of sausage) and then go to St. Augustine's church

Pretty and magnificent façade of the towering church stands out and caught the attention of everyone. It brings awe the moment you step into the church with the impressive gilded interior in its original state and ceiling frescoes depicting the life of St. Augustine and the history of the order. Those are amazing artwork that have existed since the 13th... More

The church is located in the heart of Mainz, close to the cathedral - about two minutes walk. It is hidden among other buildings and to the street goes just with the facade, which is notable for the sculpture group above the portal with the figure of the Virgin Mary in the center and on the sides - St. Augustine...

Located in the Aldstadt, St Augustine's Church is open pretty much all the time. There are church services, but during the weekdays, it is open to the public. From the outside, it looks like a lovely old building with statues that suggests something special inside. Through a small entrance, you are greeted with baroque imagery and ornate decorations. Look and... More

This is a beautiful 18th century church, located in central Mainz. The most striking aspect of this church is undoubtedly its stunning ceiling with its beautiful colors. However, the altar and the organ are impressive as well. The acoustics in the church is absolutely wonderful.

This church was not damaged by the war. It's a nice glimpse at the original beauty of such an old church! It's a great place to just sit and stare at the ceiling.

Among Germany's grand churches and cathedrals, this one stands out for its exquisite detail and modest size. Tucked into a quiet street, you might pass it by unnoticed, but once you enter its doors the space is both intimate and impressive. It's diminutive size makes the details more accessible, and the windows admit enough light for the ceiling mural and... More
