Friends suggest we stop at the Rathaus to take the lift up to the viewpoint from which you can see the entire city, unfortunately the lift is closed in the winter.

I only saw this building at night but it was beautiful - worth a look. Would have liked to see in the daylight

Open to the public also on Saturdays this is an amazing Rathaus. Huge corridors, a staircase that does not seem to end and very interesting the birds view on the town before and after the second world war and today.

This is a must-see in Hannover. You will want to be sure and take the slated elevator to the top of the tallest tower for an impressive view of Hannover on a clear day!

With a guide we were inside the building and saw the maquette that is inside the hall. The archetecture is worth to have a stop here and to go inside. (When it is allowed)

Nearly everything is closed on a Sunday. No hop on, hop bus no shops open. But the Railway stn. Has little shops and loads of cafes so we made our way there but it was a wasted day. my favourite place was Munster. Beautiful churches and plenty of shops and restaurants.

One of the major sights of Hannover.Opened by the Kaiser in 1913.The Mayor of Hannover apparently said to the Kaiser,"All built with cash,Majesty."The Rathaus was one of the few buildings to survive the heavy bombing of Hannover.It is a very impressive sight ,which rather reminded me of Glasgow City Chambers.The building is well heated and has helpful English speaking staff....
