In addition to the beatiful construction and architectural view of this building, one of most important and interesting things for me was the maquette of Hannover city in 4 different times in the past. The maquette of Hannover before and during the WWII show the motivation and strong of duetch people for creation and beginning a new country and different... More

A beautiful building, meant to have a pop in in passing. Ended up spending 2 hours walking around taking photos. Definitely worth going in and walking around the lake. 10/10 considering its just the town hall.

Take the time to go to the top of the tower to see the views: the lift that curves inside the dome is also a great experience and the man in charge very interesting. At the top there is a bit of climbing but nothing too strenuous and once there ther views over Hannover and the surrounding area are amazing.... More

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.

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.
