Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Lower Saxony / Hannover / Marktkirche
To see the southernmost example of the North German Brick Gothic architectural style, visit Marktkirche, the city's main Lutheran church. Completed in 1366, the church is noted for its saddleback roof, rising above the nave and two aisles. The high western tower, one of the highest in this part of the country, once represented a symbol of the city's wealth and power. Today, the tower is a major urban landmark, easily spotted from numerous distant parts of the city. Inside the building you can see the main altar of linden wood, carved around 1480. The front of the altar shows 21 scenes from the life of Christ, while the back displays images of the church's two patron saints, Saint George and Saint James. The church also boasts the biggest bell in Lower Saxony, only used on special occasions.

The music played there at the time we were there was fantastic. But I don’t like some scary sculpture inside it.

Probably one of the noticeable landmarks in Hanover. It is a great starting point when traveling around the city. During the summer time, there is a beach court and some recreational activities outside. You cannot miss this church when visiting Hanover.
Though the place has a history but architecture wise I did not find it very intriguing as compared to churches in Spain and Italy built around same time. You may find it interesting to visit if you like historical and old buildings regardless of the architecture.
It is an impressive and captivating place with its splendor, scale and architecture. Free admission. Inside you can find chairs and listen to live church music. I attended an organ concert and Frank Schult's painting exhibition in this church. A powerful, inspiring organ sound that shakes the imagination, combined with technically perfect images of Frank Schult, creates an unforgettable atmosphere. June 21, 2022, Fete de la Musique, 17:25, performance by the female choir Vocalinda. Performing with women is a wonderful experience. A very beautiful and spacious church. The staffs are very nice and friendly people. Organ music is often performed in the evenings.

The Market Church (German: Marktkirche, meaning 'church at the market place') is the main Lutheran church in Hanover, Germany. Built in the 14th century, it was referred to in 1342 as the church of Saints James and George (Latin: ecclesia sanctorum Jacobi et Georgii) in dedication to Saint James the Elder and Saint George. Replacing an older, smaller, church at the same location that dated to 1125 and that is known to have been called St. Georgii (after Saint George) in 1238, Hanover grew around it and the market place situated immediately adjacent to its south that was established around the same time.: 3 Today the official name of the church is Market Church of Saints George and James (Marktkirche St. Georgii et Jacobi), and along with the nearby Old Town Hall is considered the southernmost example of the northern German brick gothic architectural style (norddeutsche Backsteingotik).
