  • Marktkirche/Marketchurch - Hannover

Here is the heart of the oldest part of Hannover. The Marktkirche has been a place of worship since 800 years.

In the 12th century a small church was build on this place in romanesque style, the St. Georg's Church. In 14th century citizens wanted a bigger church. This is the big Gothic Church, which you can still see as Market Church today.

The building was badly damaged during an air raid in 1943. It was rebuild in the 1950s.

The Marktkirche is almost always open. I like to go inside and sit down for a few minutes and meditate.
