About Aegidien Kirche, Hannover
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 - Write a Review
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.
A reminder of WWII. The roof is totally gone by the bombing. It also got a bell from Hiroshima, its sister city, for remembering the trauma of war and the importance of peace.
