Aegidien Kirche - Review

It’s when you come close to this standard looking church when you see how battered beyond repair it is. Then you realise its not a church, but a memorial, left to stand as it was after the Allies had bombed it in WWII. There’s an austere grace to the place; it’s a lot more beautiful in death than it probably was in life. There’s no organization looking over it now, just tourists walking through its ruins. There’s a bell here, the Peace Bell, donated by the Japanese in commemoration of the bomb that fell on Hiroshima. There’s beautiful statue call Humbleness.

Aegidien Kirche, Hannover Reviews

  • It was destroyed in World War II, and was left in ruins as a war memorial. Several Baroque epitaphs are featured on the outer walls. One of them, for Susanna Magdalena Oldekop, who died in 1648 as a child, shows her with an angel. In 1985, the Japanese sister city of Hanover, Hiroshima, donated a peace bell which is installed close to the tower. It is used in an annual service on Hiroshima Day, 6 August. A very though provoking and solemn place, ideal as a place of reflection for what happened during WW2.

  • The Aegidienkirche is a ruined church in Hanover, the capital of Lower Saxony, Germany. It was one of three churches in the Old Town, the others being the Marktkirche and the Kreuzkirche. It was destroyed in World War II, and was left in ruins as a war memorial. It is quite moving to walk around in the roofless building, with it's fire blackened walls, and reflect on war and the ruin it can bring. In 1985, the Japanese twinned city Hiroshima (destroyed by a A-bomb), donated a peace bell which is installed by the the tower. It is used in an annual service on Hiroshima Day, 6 August (the anniversary of its destruction in 1945). Worth a visit if you are staying in Hannover.

  • Important piece of history. Old Church destroyed during the war and not rebuilt afterwards. It has been turned into a memorial. It's free to enter.

  • Wow the remains are beautiful because of the track of time

  • It's a nice historic place that you must see when visiting Hannover. The walls are standing while there is no ceiling as it has been collapsed during the world war II. It's clock is wonderful and worth seeing. It's location is in the heart of the city centre so it's easily accessible.
