Kath. Pfarramt St. Stephan, Mainz

(4.8/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Originally built in the year 990 on the order of Archbishop Willigis, Kath. Pfarramt St. Stephan now features Marc Chagall-designed stained-glass choir windows. Created in the late 1970s through 1985, the windows depict of Bible scenes. You'll find nothing else quite like them in Germany. This structure offers a counterpoint to the Mainz Cathedral, which Willigis also had constructed. Few intentional changes have been made to this church since the 14th century. However, it required extensive rebuilding after World War II bombing. Plan to visit Kath. Pfarramt St. Stephan and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Mainz attractions using our Mainz trip itinerary planner.

  • This church is worth a visit for its beautiful stained glass Windows. From the outside is not seen nothing but inside we are literally amazed!

  • 有句話說,與心愛的人到哪裡去,都是美好的回憶;我覺得,如果那是一個美好的場景,那回憶將會更增添萬分!我想,聖斯特凡就是一個這樣的地方!推門進去後就看到大片的藍色玻璃,看到夏卡爾的經典與他跨越時空傳達而來的價值。  more »
  • If you come to Mainz should see Church the Chagall window in the Stefan s! These are unique because except in New York, there's nowhere to admire Chagall window, which are unique! Wen possible should you hours at noon on a bright day and the visit, because where the sun shines the most, because there you can admire all blue shades best! Do not miss also a tour in the monastery garden behind the Church

  • A must see if you are in Mainz. Windows designed and made by Chagall and are all in shades of blue. See if you can go when the sun shines bright.
  • Excellent. The Chagall windows are amazing and so is the courtyard. The detail in the stained glass is breathtaking and tell a number of the Bible stories. The courtyard enhances the light of the day and is worth spending some time looking at.
  • 藍色玻璃非常漂亮!
  • Beautiful church. Absolutely worth visiting. In particular the beautiful Chagal Windows dip the Interior during sunny weather a great blue. On Sundays from 12:10 h (after mass) one can attend ca 30 min lecture on the history of the Church and the window free one. Worth it!
