Visit the Roemer-Pelizaeus Museum. It is popular for the best selection and exhibition on Ancient Egypt in Europe. Here you can see a lot of interesting exhibits . Regular specials are phantastic. It is a real must to go there.
And don't forget to visit the Dome with its 1000years old rose bush.There is a fable about the bush saying that as long as the roses grow Hildesheim will exist and prosper. The dome is a world cultural heritage.
The rest of the city is not that nice because the city burnt down after an air-raid in March 1945.
But the most beautiful semi-fabricated house in Germany, the Knochenhauer Amtshaus was rebuilt only a few years ago. It is really nice.

Fondest memory: I spend my school time in Hildesheim, it was the best. During free time we spend in Bar´s and cafe´s,hang arround, take, make jokes, meet people. It was really a great time.
Many years ago there was a 1:1 reproduction of one of the famous caves of Lascaux (France), which cannot be visited, at the Roemer-Pelizaeus-Museum. I was there on the last day of this exhibition and I enjoyed the really strange feeling of a surrounding which represented what an early human race (Cro-Magnon) had created some - how many? - tenthousands years ago.
It was exiting to look at the painting of those ice-age people and many visitors were there. But imagine the moment, when all the others had left and everything was absolutely quiet and I was for a few seconds alone in this 'cave' with all the pictures 'talking' to me from the emotions of early humans. I'll never forget this!
On the pavements you see such roses painted. Follow them and you won't miss any attraction of Hildesheim.
