St Michael's Church, Hildesheim

Interesting
The layout of the church of St Michael, with its two choirs dating from the early 11C, is characteristic of the Ottonian style in Lower Saxony. Note the 13C painted wooden ceiling in the nave, the alternating pillars and columns which are typical of Lower Saxony, the two-storey galleries in the transepts, and the simplicity of the cube-shaped Ottonian capitals, all of which combine to make this a remarkable building. Of the original decor, the angel choir screen, to the right of the west choir, can still be seen.
