1. ehemaliger Hannoverscher Bahnhof

Show sight on map

The Hannoversche Bahnhof is the former main station of the city of Osnabrück. The station on today's Wittekindstraße was opened on the Hanoverian Western Railway towards Löhne on 22 November 1855. Until the closure of passenger services in 1895, the Hannoversche Bahnhof was the most important station in the city of Osnabrück. Due to the intersection with the Wanne-Eickel–Hamburg railway a few hundred metres east of Hanover station, the new Osnabrück Hauptbahnhof was built there. Freight traffic was operated until the completion of the central freight transshipment station in the district of Fledder in 1913. The station building served as an administration building for Deutsche Bahn until 2004, but has since been sold.

St. Marien is a Lutheran parish and market church in Osnabrück, Germany. It is one of the most artistically and historically significant buildings in the North German city. A previous Romanesque church was mentioned in records as early as 1177. However, the history of the church's construction began some time before it was first mentioned in writing. Archaeological traces suggest the existence of a predecessor building in the 10th century. Construction of the Gothic hall church which exists today started in the 13th century and was completed between 1430 and 1440.
