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!

Going up with the first inclinate elevator in the world is an experience itself but looking the city when you arrive at th top is a beautiful experience. I love Hannover and it's red line (also the first) where you can find really beautiful places

This place is stunning inside & well worth a visit. Opened in 1913, it has a lot of fantastic period features. It also has very interesting models of Hannover through the ages including a model of the destroyed city after the Allied bombings & the subsequent rebuilding. Tours are available.

Beautiful scale models of Hannover at different stages in the past and present, the lift to the top of the tower is also definitely worth the wait, beautiful views all over the city.

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
