To see the southernmost example of the North German Brick Gothic architectural style, visit Café an der Marktkirche, the city's main Lutheran church. Completed in 1366, the church is noted for its saddleback roof, rising above the nave and two aisles. The high western tower, one of the highest in this part of the country, once represented a symbol of the city's wealth and power. Today, the tower is a major urban landmark, easily spotted from numerous distant parts of the city. Inside the building you can see the main altar of linden wood, carved around 1480. The front of the altar shows 21 scenes from the life of Christ, while the back displays images of the church's two patron saints, Saint George and Saint James. The church also boasts the biggest bell in Lower Saxony, only used on special occasions.

  • Lutheran church dedicated to the martyrs in general. It has a portal with a very particular work (representations of the dead by different means - there are tanks of war, fire, malnutrition, etc.)
