What a wonderful Cathedral! Located a little past the main square of Mainz. Be sure and see the 9 windows done by Marc Chagall located towards the front of the church.

Being a fan of Marc Chagall for many years, I wanted to visit this church to view the glass windows. Mostly in blue tones, the glass provides a quiet, somber atmosphere to the room. The church is located up the hill from the Schiller Platz...More

The church was about a 30 minute walk from the hotel. We happened in when the boys choir was practising and we were encouraged to sit and listen. The blue of the stain glass windows was stunning. For fans of Marc Chagall it was a...More

I have to admit we decided to visit Mainz mainly for the Marc Chagall stain glass windows. It's just around 40 minutes from Frankfurt with the S-Bahn travelling every 30 minutes, but actually there are two lines you can use so the transport is perfect....More

Did a short visit when I was in Mainz for work. The church was really quiet, perhaps as it was a Friday noon. The window panes were beautiful, even when there was no sunlight shining in due to the rainy and cloudy weather.

Beautiful stained glass windows but other than that an average church. Not sure how this is the #1 attraction in Mainz. Worth checking out if in the area but not worth going out of your way to see it.

The St Stephans Church suffered heavy damaged during World War-II. The church earliest set-up in wood dates from > 100 years ago, later replaced by versions in stone. Marc Chagall designed nine windows (stained glass) between 1978 and 1985, and these are of great beauty....More

I loved seeing the stained glass in this church. While smaller and architecturally less complex inside than the Mainz Dom, I think I preferred this church with the subtly powerful stained glass. The blue glow infused through provided a calming and exhilarating effect. I couldn't...More

Very seldom I have seen such beautiful windows in a church as here. All these shades os blue are absolutely stunning. The story of the Gospel is very well told by the artist. A must see if you are exploring Mainz.

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
