Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Is incredible the amount of energy and different vibes you feel learning from this church, that the Germans decide to keep the memory’s of a very sad and horrible moment on world history.

Several cities in northern Germany (Berlin, Hamburg, Hannover,...) have such Churches left in the state they were in 1945. Purpose is to remind people on war devastations never to happen again.
Aegidienkirche is set in the very center and there used to be a Church here from 12 century onwards which was several times rebuilt over centuries. Intense allied bombing 1943-45 left the Tower standing but the Church roofless. Beneath the bell tower you can find a bell from Hiroshima as a present from Japanese government.

Aegidienkirche is one of the sites in Hannover left untouched after the bombing frenzy during the last world war. It stands as a reminder of what war means to common people in any small or big town at times when common sense disappears.

It is impossible to miss it, as it is near the New Town Hall, the Landesmuseum and Maschsee.

教堂保留了二战时被炸毁后的原貌,植物生长在墙上,使它拥有历史底蕴和勃勃生机的结合。站在其中的感受是十分独特的。The church has been preserved as it was after the bombing of the Second World War, with plants growing on the walls, giving it a combination of historical heritage and vibrancy. The feeling of standing in it is very unique.

Lovely to visit, and being autumn, the colours of the leaves were really nice to see in contrast with the ruins of the church, especially on a bright, sunny day.

The remains of the church are a beautiful memorial of what happend to Hannover during WW2. Found in the centre of Hannover it is well worth visiting, just a short walk from the town hall.

Very visible traces of war. It's easy to see what the nasty side of war is because even with all the destruction it's still easy to see that this is/was a very beautiful church. It's now a memorial for all the victims of war.

The Aegidienkirche, bombed in WOII and left in ruins as a war memorial. The peace bell was donated by the city of Hiroshima, Japan.
Spend a little time here. Absorb the history and think about the madness of war.
This sight is on the Red Thread route that guides you around Hannover town.
