It's a great building with lake and park nearby. A favorite place for locals and tourists to relax on nice weather. Best time to take picture is right after the sunset but before getting too dark.

Find this magnificent building along the interesting Red Thread walk. An amazing building with very interesting history of Hannover. Jaw dropping scale models of the city show the massive destruction brought to Hannover City by the 1945 bommings.

We visited the Rathaus with a 4-year old in tow, and whilst it was extremely interesting to learn about the history of Hannover and it's environs, the 'small person' didn't seem to agree. Which is understandable. That aside, the building is beautiful and has some wonderful, authentic features and details; inside and outside. The models of the Hannover pre, peri... More

I stayed at a Hotel a few minutes walk from the Hannover 'Rathaus' whilst in Germany on business and took a walk over one morning to look this magnificent building over. Built in 1901 to 1913 this is a major landmark and attraction with the top of its dome standing reaching 320ft. Inside there is a tourist information desk and... More

A just superb city hall. A great building inside and out. Beautifull details. Do go inside for the models of old Hannover and informative also of the era of WOII (Hannover was bombed severly) Also go up the central tower for gorgeous views of the city and surroundings

All and all this is a very beautiful building but what people don't realise is they have a canteen in the basement that is open to the General public! Very good value for money and I fully recommend that people come here for lunch! Enjoy

On April 2014 I travelled to Hannover to meet my German friend and I asked him to bring me to the place he wanted to show. He chose City Hall, of course! We bought a ticket to the top of the Dome, I could not remember what the price was but I am sure it's worth for!! Even the lift... More

The New Town Hall is a tremendously amusing building. It has Scottish Baronial, Gothic and Dutch touches to a very confident German style. With a giant Roman dome plonked on a Gothic tower, Quite remarkable. The interior is in a style familiar to all those grand Edwardian town halls found in Yorkshire. The grounds contain a lake which reflect the... More
