A must see when you are in Hannover - beautiful building on the outside but definitely also on the inside. Also a great exhibit inside over how the city looked like in the early days until now.

This is an interesting building architecturally. Inside in the foyer, there is a series of displays of the growth of Hannover including its devastation during the Second World War and its recent growth. These displays are very well worth a visit. The view from the top is good but of course depends on the weather.

The elevator up to the cupola is really interesting, angled at 17 degrees and the views from the top of the cupola are amazing. The 'through the ages' floor plans of the city are particularly well done.

Not really a lot to do here but admire the beautiful architecture from the outside then go inside to see 4 amazing models of Hannover. They depict the city in the 1600's, then 1939, 1945, and today. It doesn't take long but is definately worth looking at.

The elevator that goes around a curve to the top of the Rathaus. The view from there is breathtaking. Hannover has many nice green places.

This is a world-class place to visit. It takes awile to get to the top, but the view around Hannover, one of Germany's nicest, and most thoughtfully reconstructed cities, is brilliant. But just as impressive are the four miniature recreations of Hannover in the lobby, at four periods of time. Perhaps as much as anything I've seen in Germany during... More

The only curved lift in Europe... and what a view from the top. The scenery is spectacular and the garden outside is just marvelous.

The dome view, the marble interior, the model displays of the city all were fantastic. Nothing to dislike here!

Loved every minute spent here. it cost 3 euros to go up the elevator to view the whole of the city.it is well worth it. The elevator on its own is an experience.
