Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Rhineland-Palatinate / Mainz / St. Stephan's Church (Stephanskirche)
Originally built in the year 990 on the order of Archbishop Willigis, St. Stephan's Church (Stephanskirche) 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 my day in Mainz using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
