Well worth a visit! You don’t need to be religious to appreciate what went into building something of this magnitude. Absolutely amazing piece of architecture.

In contrast to many southern German Catholic cathedrals, the Marktkirche is not ornately decorated. It is, however, monumentally large and architecturally interesting. Of...More

I agree with the rest of the reviews! This church is definitely worth of visit. This church suffered a lot of damage during World War II as did much of Hannover. Very beautiful inside and architecturally interesting.

Hannover's main Lutheran church. It was built in the 14th century as told by the locals. It's generally made of bricks; the spire is actually intimidating when seen up close. The church was badly damaged during WWII but thankfully reconstructed as close as possible to...More

On this place a church was already built in the 12th century. Archaeological excavations in the '80s of last century confirmed the history of this place. In the 14th century the original "Marktkirche" was built and in the 16th century the church was taken over...More
