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.

This church was not damaged by the war. It's a nice glimpse at the original beauty of such an old church! It's a great place to just sit and stare at the ceiling.
