Blue glass by Chagall and a pupil turn this mediaeval church into a place of magic and mystery with a peaceful atmosphere that delights. The cloisters provide a different but complementary experience. A wonderful place to visit and sit in thought!

We had an opportunity to have a Chagall exhibit in our area of the USA last winter. These windows are exceptional! The blues are striking. This is a must see if you enjoy his work!

Beautiful church with bells chiming when we arrived. Lots of hills so wear good walking shoes. We didn't visit long because mass was starting but enjoyed it non the less.

Marc Chagall's stained glass is definitely a must see when in Mainz. It is better to visit it on a shinny day, if you are lucky enough.

Marc Chagall's stained glass was a marvellous revelation in the ancient church, tucked away just outside the shopping area of Mainz. Well worth a trip to see.

Definitely recommend this hidden gem in Mainz. The windows are every shade of blue and the new organ is so beautiful!
