Market Church


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.
