Neustädter Kirche (New Town Church), Hanover

The Neustädter Kirche is an Evangelical Lutheran Church located in the suburb of Neustadt Calenberger. The official name is Neustädter Hof- und Stadtkirche St. Johannis zu Hannover (St. John's Church of the court and the city in the New Town at Hanover).

It is an important example of a baroque style church. It is thought the church, which was built in the years 1666-70, was designed by notable Venetian architect Jeronimo Sartorio. A medieval chapel of St. Mary had been the original structure on the site. Mathematician and philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz and Field Marshal Carl August von Alten are buried here.

The church is known for its church music, performed in service and concert by the Kantorei St. Johannis (St. John's chorale), and serves as a venue for concerts, for example in the context of the Expo 2000 and the Kirchentag. It houses a "Spanish organ", suitable for early Baroque music, in collaboration with the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hannover.
