The view from the top of the building is breathtaking .... And the elevator trip is very nice... Walking back to the city is a short lovely trip...

One of the few buildings that survived the second world war bombings , they had some models of the layout of the town from the 17 century onwards

The most interesting thing in this place are the scenes (models) of how the city was, from ancient times to now.

I walked to the Rathaus from the train station, and spent 30 minutes or so wandering around the building before heading to the surrounding park. The viewing deck was not open when I arrived at the building, so be sure to look into that before you go! However, I really enjoyed the city hall for its closeness to the park... More

This is one of the most impressive City Halls in Germany. It is really big. Around the City Hall, there is also a lake anda a park, where you can take nice photos. Unmissable.

Enjoy the view from the top and see the Maschsee and Niedersachsenstadion/HDI-Arena where Hannover96 is based. The price of 3€ is also a bargain. But its not only the view, I love the displays of the different stages of Hannover reflecting the change after the wars and how it affected the infrastructure and look of the city (This bit is...

This was a wonderful, yet emotional visit for me. It is an amazing building. Although I am deathly afraid of heights, I made it to the top to see the fabulous view. When I looked at the various models of the city & in particular the one post war, I was overcome with emotion. My parents & grandparents went through... More

Take the bendy lift to the top and enjoy the views - stunning on a clear day! Beautiful building inside and out - if you're lucky you can park right outside too. Welcoming staff and gift shop too.

The building alone is beautiful on the outside, is free to get in and look around and there are several models of the city. Crazy to see how much the city has grown and how much was destroyed during the war. MUST take the elevator up. 3€ to go up, but it's a crazy ride, elevator tilts 17° on the... More
