This is the Mainz Cathedral. Its scientific name is St. Mardin's Cathedral. It is one of the largest and most magnificent cathedrals in Germany and the main cathedral of the Catholic Diocese of Mainz.

I found several places in the market square next to the church, but couldn’t take a picture of it as a whole.
