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.
