Any mention or photos of the Falkenhaus of Würzburg would not miss the looming block of red and white church that is Marienkapelle. True to its Gothic architecture, the details of the decorating sculptures as well as those stuccoes adorning the tower and ribbed exterior were impressive. And for such a marvellous church of this size to be named a chapel was puzzling. Digging into its history online, I realized that its Gothic architecture was not original, nor was the church itself.
Its interior was magnificent, but not extraordinarily so compared to certain other churches and cathedrals which I had visited. After the post World War restoration and recent refurbishment, it looked much more modern inside when I was expecting that the nearly six century old building to exude a certain archaic charm. Nevertheless the tall ceiling and stained glass windows adorning certain sections still exuded an aura that threatened to take visitor's breath away.
