Kirche St. Christoph, Mainz

We rounded a corner in Mainz’s Old City and came upon the striking sight of St. Christoph, a 14th-century Gothic church, that was among the casualties of the 1945 bombings that destroyed 80% of Mainz.

This church was particularly notable since it was Gutenberg’s baptismal church. Now, it serves as a WWII memorial and a symbol of the destroyed city. The chancel still serves as a chapel.

Christofsstraße, 55116 Mainz
