Café an der Marktkirche, Hannover

(4.2/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • Very impressive, Christmas in the Marktkirche. Great acoustics, beautiful brick architecture. The choir with wonderful voices was especially nice.

  • Market Church of Georg and Jakob-the central building of the historic part of Hanover. Concise, like all Protestant churches and several gloomy in the Gothic style. Inside the small congregation, but there is a body and a beautiful altar. Near a statue of the founder of Protestantism, Martin Luther. Not a masterpiece, but it is possible to visit.
