The ru­ins of the Aegi­di­en­church pro­vide the back­drop for a very spe­cial ex­pe­ri­ence du­ring the Über­schlag Fes­ti­val: a nightly live per­for­mance with Ra­phael Sbrzesny.

The Aegi­di­en­church is lo­ca­ted in the centre of Ha­no­ver.
The church ru­ins can be en­te­red via the main ent­rance as well as via side ent­ran­ces. All ent­ran­ces are bar­rier-free.
The lo­ca­tion does not have its own sa­ni­tary facilities.

In­side at night

The Aegi­di­en­church, built in the 14th cen­tury, is the eas­tern­most of the th­ree churches in the old town. .
It was lar­gely de­s­troyed in the Se­cond World War and not re­built.
Its ru­ins have been a me­mo­rial since 1954, a church of re­mem­brance of the Se­cond World War and a church of the wish for peace.



The church is com­ple­tely bar­rier-free. Un­fort­u­na­tely, there are no sa­ni­tary fa­ci­li­ties in the location.
