  • Beautiful church
  • So old

  • Early Romanesque church built in the first third of the 11th century, with symmetric square and round arch forms and an impressive testimony of Ottonian architecture. The world heritage sites in St. Michaelis is a double chorus-Basilica with two transepts, a square tower at each crossing and Gallery facilities closing down the transept arms arranged as a double cross. The Bernwardskrypta (the burial place of Bishop Bernwards) is located in the West choir. A flat wooden ceiling painted with the pedigree of Christ from the first half of the 13th century, one of the three only surviving monumental panel paintings of the middle ages spans in the central nave of the nave held the white red-brown Interior.
