The Mainz Church

Built around 1240, Saint Christophers Church in Mainz is one of the few examples around of Gothic design. It's about ten minutes walking from the Theodor Heuss Bridge.

The church was hit early on in WW II....August of 1942, and mostly burned down.  The walls came down in Feb 1945 after another bombing raid.

The city of Mainz made the decision to rebuild the church.....to the feature of walls only (no roof or interior).  The church is still in some stage of project.
