Travelling exhibition: Medieval town halls in Lower Saxony and Bremen

In mid-September 2003, we opened our travelling exhibition "Mittelalterliche Rathäuser in Niedersachsen und Bremen" (Medieval Town Halls in Lower Saxony and Bremen), showing ten town halls in Lower Saxony as important examples of representative secular architecture of the Late Middle Ages and Early Modern Times. The location of the town halls, their architecture, their ornamentation and, in particular, their rich interior decoration are testimony of their creators' communal self-confidence and political ideals.
Moreover, the exhibition will present new insights gained from recent archival research and investigation by the Faculty of Conservation and Restoration at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hildesheim/Holzminden/Göttingen under the supervision of Prof. Ursula Schädler-Saub.

Subsequently, it will travel to the other participating cities: Bremen, Brunswick, Celle, Duderstadt, Goslar, Einbeck, Hanover, Lueneburg and Osnabrueck.

The new Cultural Heritage Route appeared as volume 6 within the series of publications by the Hornemann Institute.
