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.

  • Interesting to something like that in the city. But I like it, awesome at morning!

  • A unique place of emotions, history and beauty.

  • A remnant of the world war. Worth seeing.

  • 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.
