Welcome to Hildesheim

    With a population of around 100,000, Hildesheim is a large independent city in Lower Saxony. Located around 29 kilometers south-east of the state capital and trade fair city of Hanover, it is known as a university and episcopal city.

    One of the city's landmarks is the 1,000-year-old rose tree next to the Knochenhauer-Amtshaus on the historic market square with its half-timbered houses. The two UNESCO World Heritage churches of St. Michaelis and St. Mary's Cathedral are also among the most famous sights. The Römer- und Pelizaeus Museum is a world-famous museum with an important collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts and is well worth a visit. We also recommend a stroll through the picturesque alleyways of the old town with its many half-timbered houses.
