The settlement very quickly developed into a town which was awarded market rights by King Otto III in 983. Originally the market was held in a street called Old Market (Alter Markt) which still exists today. The first market place was laid out around the church St. Andreas. When the city grew further, a bigger marketplace became necessary. The present marketplace of Hildesheim was laid out at the beginning of the 13th century when the city had about 5,000 inhabitants. When Hildesheim obtained city rights in 1249, it was one of the biggest cities in Northern Germany.Construction of the present City Hall started in 1268. Several impressive half-timbered houses were built in the Market Place as well. The Butchers’ Guild Hall was the tallest and the most famous of them.

On 22 March 1945 the half-timbered houses of the marketplace were destroyed by incendiary bombs, and the City Hall and the Temple House, a patrician house dating from the 14th century, which was built of sandstone, were severely damaged.

I love to visit again in Hildesheim and I want to see more. I used my iPad and a bit dark if you took a photo in winter and there’s no such a little bit dark.  That’s my experience about Hildesheim. I want to go to different places here in Germany without spending much, you don’t need to spend so much money to travel.  How about you? Did you spend so much money when you travel to different places

12509779_471585829717174_8273198104774951790_n         See you soon in my next destination and I’m happy to share about my travel. Always think positive that you can do it no matter what. If you really want something you will find a way. Learning the culture and history of the different places is the also an education to yourself. Not all the things you will learn only by reading but also to visit the places and experience it. It’s easy to search on the internet but if you have a chance to visit why not? For me by visiting different places is like learning about the history. I hope you like it and I want to hear about your travel too.

          The City Hall, erected in Gothic style, is one of the oldest city halls in Germany. The construction was started in 1268 and completed in 1290, using sandstone from a local quarry which still can be seen in a forest in Hildesheim called Steinberg (Stone Mountain).
