Stop At: German Brazilian municipality eV, Freizeitheim Linden, Windheimst 4, 30451 Hannover, Germany

Meet your guide in front of the Market Church, the main Lutheran church in Hanover. Built in the 14th century it's considered to be one of the most well-known example of the North German brick gothic architectural style. Partially destroyed by an air raid in 1943 and restored later on, its high western tower was a symbol for the power and the wealth of the citizens of the town and it still represents an important landmark of the city. Admire the Old Town Hall, built in about 100 years, with Romanesque style influences and Neo-Gothic architecture. Listen to your guide as he will explain the portraits of the princes and coats-of-arms it features on the building's murals. Close by, you can see another landmark, the Ballhof Building that used to be a sports hall designed for ball games out of the wind and rain. Later it was used as an assembly hall and eventually became a theatre. Move on, walking through the winding alleys all the way to Kreuz-Church the oldest church in Hanover, dating from 1333. Mostly destroyed during WWII, like most parts of the Old Town, it was reconstructed after the war. Continue your walk until you reach Oskar-Winter- Fountain, a local fountain with a fascinating story. The legend says that if you make a wish and turn the small brass ring embedded in the ironwork, that wish will come true. Behind the fountain, you can see the Leibniz House, the place where the mathematician and philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) used to live. Let’s move on to our next highlight, the Aegidien Church, a reminder to the horrors of war. Destroyed during the WWII, it was never repaired or reconstructed. Inside the ruins you can see the Peace Bell, donated by the city of Hiroshima. Annually, on 6 th of August at 08:15, a delegation from Hiroshima comes to ring the bell, in the memory of those that died during the air strike. We continue your walk to the last tourist attractions, the New Town Hall. "Ten million Marks, Your Majesty – and all paid for in cash", announced the City Director, Heinrich Tramm, when the New Town Hall was opened by Emperor Wilhelm II. Visit the Town Hall and you will understand exactly why the costs were so high. Climb the 98 m to the top in the curved lift, the only one of its kind in Europe, inside its green dome for a breathtaking view of the city and, if lucky enough, a view of the Harz Mountain range.
