St Mary's Cathedral and St Michael's Church at Hildesheim
St Michael's Church was built between 1010 and 1020
on a symmetrical plan with two apses that was characteristic of
Ottonian Romanesque art in Old Saxony. Its interior, in particular the
wooden ceiling and painted stucco-work, its famous bronze doors and the
Bernward bronze column, are – together with the treasures of St Mary's
Cathedral – of exceptional interest as examples of the Romanesque
churches of the Holy Roman Empire.
