Hildesheim is especially famous for its churches: St. Mary’s Cathedral and St. Michael’s Church are both designated as UNESCO-World-Heritage-Sites. The two churches preserve an exceptionally large number of historical furnishings, which give a one-of-a-kind overview of a church’s design, as was common during the Romanesque period.
Two Hildesheim architectural monuments along with their treasures of art were included in the list of UNESCO-World-Heritage-Sites: St. Michael’s, one of the most beautiful early Romanesque churches in Germany, together with St. Mary’s Cathedral and the cathedral treasury, preserve a unique ensemble of medieval artistic décor. The legendary 1,000-year-old rosebush that grows on the cathedral’s apse is widely known, too.
