Hannover Time

Tuesday 12th July, 2022

A short march into town brought me back to the centre where I found a nice cafe for breakfast. I then went to see the main sites in the centre of the city, which really is lovely.

The Aegidienkirche was originally built in the 14th century but was bombed in WWII and the people of Hannover decided not to rebuild it but leave it as a memorial to those who died. It's now used occasionally as an arts venue.

The city of Hiroshima donated a peace bell which is used in a special service on Hiroshima Day (6th August).

The "new" town hall was opened in 1913 and has a beautiful setting in the Maschpark. It was being set up for summer concerts - this has been a common theme at many sites on my travels - including Pompeii!

The “old” town hall was built in the 15th Century and was partly covered in scaffolding - this part was visible!

Then it was back to the hotel to get some work done, and to consider my next move. I had planned to go to Leipzig but I’m liking Hannover and so may extend my stay.
