Café an der Marktkirche, Hannover
(4.2/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • You can not miss the market Church during a tour through the old town of Hanover. The tower can be seen from afar. On the forecourt, a Christmas market is held each year and a large fir-tree amazed not only children. In the advent season, there are evening advent devotions with readings or even musical performances. Very atmospheric and recommend. Here, you can stop at rest and even go to his Christian roots.
