Every year, around 200,000 visitors from all over the world make a pilgrimage to St. Stephen's Church to admire the artwork of artist Marc Chagall: the blue luminous glass windows. This makes St. Stephen's the only German church for which the Jewish artist designed windows. The windows reflect biblical figures and the stained glass illuminates the church interior in blue colors. The impressive works of art were created by Marc Chagall starting in 1978 as a sign of Jewish-Christian unity.
Anyone who has seen the famous windows should not miss the tour of the most beautiful late Gothic cloister in Rhineland-Palatinate. This was the burial place of many of the 600 canons. They are commemorated by the grave slabs and the coats of arms of the founder families. The coats of arms are enriched by modern keystones of the federal government, the state, the diocese and the city of Mainz. Art treasures such as the enthroned God the Father from the 15th century or the late Gothic figure group of Anna Selbdritt should not be overlooked.
The entrance of the church has a ramp, so that wheelchair useres can enter the church by themselves.
The church St. Stephan has two parking spaces for coaches.
