If your in Hannover it's worth the short walk down to City Hall just to see the impressive building. There are also some nice gardens at the rear with a lake that you can take a small walk around.

4 scale models of Hannover including 1939 and 1945. Makes you think! Great views from tower and nice gardens.

The main hall and miniature Hannover models from different years is still worth visiting and the building itself from the outside is quite nice. The elevators to the top are not functional after November we were told so it was a bit disappointing in that matter. Great people watching opportunities abound with couples getting married and having photos taken on... More

I like the view from upstairs after using the inclined elevator. I can see the machsee and most of Hanover form the last floor. In addition to the garden and the small lake around the Rathaus.

I was here at the tail end of a long tour around Europe and was too broke to go up the elevator to the tower to see the view. Something I sorely regret. However I will return one day to do this. The grounds are quite cool. We were following the red line guide book and ended up here, where... More

The NEW City Hall, built in the early 20th century, is a classical design. The 4 exhibition cases in the foyer, showing the history of Hannover, have been painstakingly produced - especially the 1945 post war exhibit - so much detail. Well worth a visit.
