In the rapidly descending twilight of an early January afternoon, I didn't have time to take a moment and step inside the Christuskirche. But I did snap a picture of its impressive copper dome.
The Christuskirche was dedicated in 1903, and was part of a Wilhelmine project to bring an imperial and stately air to what were then the northern suburbs of the city. A little pompous and grandiose, perhaps, something it shares with many other projects undertaken during the reign of Kaiser Wilhelm II (1888-1918). Appropriately, it stands in the median of Kaiserstrasse.
A beautiful rococo gem that was not significantly damaged during World War II, the Augustiner derives its name from the monastery on whose grounds it was constructed in the 1770s. Very much worthwhile to take a step inside to appreciate the gilding! Not to mention the cutest cherubs!
Favorite thing: I haven't been able to find out about this historic church in the city center - except for a Wikipedia article in German! I do know that portions of the church date back to the 14th century, although the church was heavily damaged in World War II and then almost entirely rebuilt after the war.
This is a very imposing Building. Though it is not as high as the koln Dom, it is still a very good landmark in Mainz.
We did not enter the Dom but it is very beautiful just viewing it from outside of it. We took several good picture of it.
Beautiful architectural which is a must for all visitor to see in Mainz.
Fondest memory: Beautiful Photos
Favorite thing: Since the city of Bacharach doesn't have it's own page, I'll put some information here. This is the old crumbling church in Bacharach that you need to find in order to get up to the youth hostel. It's a pretty cool looking church because it's only remnants and most of it's gone!
Favorite thing: We walked around in the old part of mainz. And I was fascinated, that from every place we were, we saw the cathedral. It always looks different depending where you are.
