The Marktkirche will be the setting for a special concert highlight: The two percussionists will set the scene for this time-honoured building with a one-hour concert at a late hour.
Built 750 years ago, the Marktkirche St. Georgii et Jacobi is the oldest of the three parish churches in Hannover’s old town.
The hall church stands in the direct vicinity of the state parliament and, with its 97-metre-high tower, is also known as Hanover’s landmark church.
With numerous and diverse exhibitions ranging from installations and sculptures to panel paintings and performances, it is a space for the visual arts.
In addition, it is a place of highly lively and distinguished church music.
The Bach Choir and the Kantorei St. Georg perform at the highest level, but also play an important role in the church service. The children’s and youth choir trains the next generation and also plays a prominent role in the life of church music.
On the left, northern side of the church is a barrier-free entrance with an electric door that can be opened from the outside as well as from the inside at wheelchair height. A barrier-free toilet is located next to the car park at Hanns-Lilje-Platz.
