Located in the center of Hannover, this is not a fancy place but ruins of the Aegidienkirche. Standing in the ruins, there is a special atmosphere to this place.

A bombed out shell of a church but well worth a visit if you have any interest in WW2. Free access and easily found by following the red thread walking tour (details from any tourist information office)

A gloomy reminder of the consequences of WAR. We stopped by here on the red thread walking tour. It was mildly interesting to read the plaques and memorials to the victims of the war and see a bell presented by Hiroshima city Quite moving really

A neat historical stop on your visit to see a preservation of the consequences of war. So sad that this ancient building was bombed.

A nice church, different than the rest because it has no roof, in regard of 2nd world war bombs. Free access and close to the center

A burnt out shell of what once would have been a delightful church, is a fitting memorial to the dead and destruction of war. The bell from Japan is especially touching. Unfortunately was populated by a group of drunken down-and-outs on the day of our visit.

As part of the Red Route tour (get details from Tourist Info opposite the station) the Aegidienkirche in the Old Town has been left only partly restored. The 1347 shell remains.

This is a war relic and definitely worth to visit. It serves a constant reminder on what war could do, could destroy. Within walking distance from Hannover HBF and worth a visit if you could spare the time.

This old and magnificent church is situsted in the middle of the old town. It has got beautiful vitraux and a huge organ. Very simple in style , plain decoration. On the outside there is a statue of Luther. Worthwhile visiting
