If you appreciate old architecture and painted vaulted ceilings this is a must see. I have to say from outside you wonder exactly how the upper section of the facade stays in place, but just stick your head through the door and you will be...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.
