Don't miss this! it's a small church in the Altstadt (Old Town) -- you could almost walk right by it if you didn't know to look. It's an absolutely gorgeous example of Baroque! But know that there will be beggars at the entrance -- it's just the way it is (and has been for centuries!). But they won't bother you.

This building belongs in an Art Museum. It is simply spectacular. Everything that is not made of carved wood or marble is leaved in gold or covered in murals. It simply takes your breath away. It may not be as large or as old as the Dom, but wow...do not miss out.

While heading towards Augustinerkeller restaurant, we walked past this small red standstone church. Peeping insdie, we found the Barouque interior rather beautiful, especially the ceiling fresco.

It's a short walk from the Mainz cathedral. Worth a visit.

Tucked into a pedestrianized shopping area is this lovely Baroque church. While many baroque churches are filled with overblown and bombastic art, this one is a light-filled and charming expression of baroque taste. The ceiling paintings and the organ are lovely. While in the neighborhood, don't miss the set of four of five old half-timbered buildings that managed to survive the bombing during the war--they are about a three minute walk north of the church.

Its a very unsuspecting place to find. Located right on the small pedestrian street of Mainz, and unless you are looking up you can easily walk right past not knowing the spender that lays just beyond the door.
