The ruins of this venerable old church are certainly worth a look. It is probable that a chapel was built on the site as early as the 10th Century, but it was replaced by a Romanesque basilica, the wall of which is still visible. The interior of the church was gutted during a 1943 air raid and the ruins now stand as a memorial to the victims of war and violence. The interior contains a sculpture by Lehmann and a bell from Hiroshima, Hanover's twin town. A carillon rings out from the belfry at 9a, Noon, 3p and 6p.
This lovely church was destroyed during the Allied bombing of World War II. Afterwards, many German cities were unable to rebuild much of their historical sites; yet still they wanted to remember what they had lost. The Aegidienkirche stands as a memorial to what the Germans lost during World War II. It is often used as memorial against all wars.
Hiroshima is the sister city of Hanover and they have had memorial services here, especially on 6 August, the day that Hiroshima was bombed by an atomic weapon.
There is still talk about rebuilding this church, but until then, it is a place to come and contemplate.
