This is one of Germany's most interesting buildings. The models of the bombed city in the entrance hall make visitors reflect on 20th century German history and perhaps more understanding of Hannover's terrible post-war city planning. Taking the lift up in summer is wonderful and provides the best view over the city!!

The view is nice, worth a visit.! You get to take the elevator that doesnt go up straight. It has a slight tilt, one of a kind experience. :) Was in the queue for about 20mins or so though!

Good place to look around and visiting the tour. The garden around the back is well worth exploring too.

Excellent park to enjoy a picnic in. Allow good time to go up the tower to view the city skyline. Remember to buy a ticket in the shop before using the lift and joining the queue

What a gorgeous city hall. A beautiful building on a beautiful property and with great views. The architecture is pretty impressive. It was also interesting to see inside a miniature display of Hannover how it looked at the end of WWII when a lot of it was destroyed and how it looks today. Highly recommended place.

Coming from a city full of skyscrapers, I was swept away by the beauty of this old structure. I took awhile to even get into the building as I was way too busy admiring the exterior. Carefully sculpted sculptures, the designs - beautiful! Once inside, you will be able to see 4 models of hannover and the "time lapse" of... More

This building is easy to find as it is close to main shopping streets. There was a small queue for the lift but it was worth it to get up to see the view.

Luckily ignored Trip Advisor's opening hours that told us it's closed on Sundays (actually it's open 10-6). Beautiful building, great views over city & Maschsee. Lift is more "slanted" than "curved", so brave yourself when you get in or you'll end up leaning on someone! €3 for adults & €2 for 6-18 years.

We arrived at 10am this Sunday morning and really enjoyed studying the exterior and interior of this 90 something year old building. We didn't stop at the front foyer for information, so when we got to the entry to the upper tower, we realized that ticket purchase for riding the 42 metre curve elevator was only available at the front...
