Hildesheim – Half-timbered city packed with culture and history

With UNESCO World Heritage and historical half-timbered houses, Hildesheim invites you to discover its diverse attractions. Only a few blocks from the historical market square, the view of the city from Lower Saxony’s highest church tower is well worth the climb. Not far from Hildesheim’s cathedral, the magnificent half-timbered district invites visitors to stroll through its old alleyways. A wide variety of events is on offer throughout the year, including open-air events in the summer months, and the festively decorated Christmas market awaits you in the winter.
