Former Cathedral School Now Houses The Cathedral Foyer
The former Cathedral School has been converted into the new Cathedral Foyer and has become the central point of access to the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can now enter the Cathedral, Cathedral Museum as well as the Rose of Hildesheim via the foyer.
A mix of modern and old architecture is also found in this building, making it possible to date back the wall rocks of the interior walls to the early Middle Ages, with a vaulted cellar in the basement. On the other hand, there are glass walls lining the front of the foyer, letting the relatively small room feel bright and spacious. The Thousand-Year Rose can be reached via the cloister. The upper cloister also serves as the path to the new Cathedral Museum and is also a part of the exhibit.
The Cathedral Foyer is much more than just an entrance area. Visitors to the Cathedral and the Cathedral Museum can also find knowledgeable staff here who can help them with their questions. In addition, the Cathedral Foyer also serves hot beverages, offering you a place for you to sit back and relax. Those who would like to get a souvenir to remember their trip to Hildesheim by or those who want to do a little reading on the history of the diocese and the episcopal church, can also find what they're looking for in the Cathedral Foyer.
The Cathedral Foyer is open daily from 10.00am to 6.00pm. We look forward to your visit.
