  Karmeliterkirche, Mainz
by antistar
 
 

The monastic Karmeliter Church belongs to the Order of the same name and has been in use since the 13th century. There are still monks living in the monastery, in the new buildings, about eight of them. To be honest this isn't really a must see, but it is one of the places in Mainz I will remember most fondly. I came upon it by accident in the last hour before I left the city, as I was rushing around trying to see a few of the places I'd missed earlier. Suddenly a heavy shower halted my progress and I took refuge in the doorway of the church. Sitting there watching the rain fall outside was a wonderfully contemplative experience and reminded me that life doesn't always need to be lived at a breakneck pace.

Address: Karmeliterstraße 7
Directions: Near the river. Take a right down Karmeliterstrasse from Rheinstrasse.
