The early-Romanesque church, which has been on the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage since 1985, was rebuilt as an example of Ottonian architecture from 1950 to 1957. The famous painted wooden ceiling from the 13th century depicts Christ?s lineage. Also worth seeing are the Angels? Choirs and column capitals (1171-1190), the cloister (approx. 1250) and the crypt containing the tomb of Bishop Bernward (1015).
