Beautiful, amazing building lying on a side a of a big, jammed street. Il looks like a Cinderella's castle but in fact it's a newly constructed and designed Rathaus... It worth the visit but not to spend too much time indeed...

The Rathaus is certainly an attraction that should be experienced by all travellers to Hanover, it is architecturally interesting, full of details awaiting discovery, it is educative, containing models of the city as it has evolved during its troubled past, and offers the best views of town when one climbs to the top of the building from where one can...

What an amazing place. Locals say Hannover is boring but this alone is worth the visit. The only disappointment was we didn't have enough time to get up to the viewing platform. Next time!

Although we couldn't go to the elevator, we visited the city hall from outside and the lake behind it and it is really nice...

Two standouts - The 4 motifs depicting the city from the Middle Ages, though the WWII to the present is superb. - The slanted elevator (45% gradient) is unique both for the ride, the glass bottom and for the superb views of the city from the top. Plan ahead as the elevator ride is closed in Winter (Nov through March... More

The structures is so great, they have this elevator that can go up to the top and see the view of Hannover city in 360 degrees. I read their history where they wrote it in the walls. So amazing that their city is dominated by the Protestants. Surroundings of the Rathaus is like a park, with trees and flowers around... More

One of the Hannover's landmark, the Rathaus is a very beatiful building, that deserve any tourist attention. Also the interiors are very nice, but the biggest attraction is the view from the tower (3E/person or 2 Euro for students) - it totally worth it.

A very grand building in a stunning location with a lot of history. The four models inside showing the different times of the past was intersting to see and the grand hall with the staircase was stunning to look at. Not to be missed on your visit to the city!
