Hildesheim

Hildesheim

Between 1984 and 1990 the historic old Market Square was rebuilt on the exact scale of its destroyed (1945) predecessor. Among other beautifully restored buildings one can find here the Butcher`s Guildhall (Knochenhaueramtshaus, 1529), maybe the world´s finest half-timbered building. The upper floors of the Butcher´s Guildhall house the Museum of Municipal History.

(opening hours: Tue-Sun 10am - 6pm).
The Gothic Church of St. Andrew (1389), with 114,5 m the tallest church tower in Lower Saxony, was rebuilt between 1951 and 1965 and even dominates the modern city.

If one doesn´t mind climbing up 364 steps one can enjoy from a height of 75m a magnificent view over Hildesheim and its surroundings.
