Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Germany  /  Lower Saxony  /  Hannover  /  Marktkirche

Marktkirche, Hannover

To see the southernmost example of the North German Brick Gothic architectural style, visit 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.

  • @Hannover from the Göttingen 36 minutes by car, is my last stop in Germany, Hanover is beyond my imagination, old and new integration, seamless, rigorous construction, symmetry, balance, coordination, sophisticated details fascinating. Recommended to crumble.

  • A part of the history that surrounds it has a large organ. It stands majestic that it feels nothing at his side. Its interior reminds me of the book "the pillars of the Earth".

  • Medieval church turned into a Lutheran Temple. Here, too, this ends up togliegli and depersonalize the soul. Very nice however the altarpiece behind the altar. Luxury and modern organ. We wish we could buy some CDs with organ music but there was nobody at the sales counter.
