Hildesheim, just 30km away from Hanover, is a center town on the threshold of the city. With over 100,000 inhabitants and a steady number of immigrants, Hildesheim is an important location for business, knowledge and culture in Lower Saxony.
A select number of hotels and apartments invite visitors to Hildesheim to stay. If you want to stay in the heart of the city, choose one of the hotels around the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage - the Michaeliskirche. But also around the Ernst - Ehrlicher Park you will be centrally located and the magnificent park scenery. The well-developed public transport network connects all important spots in the city and allows for uncomplicated visits to all Hildesheim cultural sites.
Among the most popular places for visits and photos, the Mariendom and the historical market square are located next to the Michaeliskirche. All of these places take visitors into the glorious times of the German Middle Ages, as well as the later era of the guilds, and provide a unique view of these epochs.
In addition to the already mentioned UNESCO cultural centers, Hildesheim offers yet another highlight of the 15th century: half-timbered houses. This architectural art can be seen live in many places in the city center. Particularly noteworthy and well preserved is the 1548-built Waffenschmiedehaus, which with traditional carvings from the 15th century to this day forms a unique testimony of German architecture.
