A 2 hours waking in a Friday morning was one of the most relaxing experiences I had in the past time. Nice buildings, small street with flowers in the windows, everything was nice.

Much of what you can see has either been brought here or reconstructed post-war. That said, this has been done very well and there are some interesting buildings and walks to be had, some unusual art as well as opportunity to people watch.

Great old building with a restaurant and offices. At the edge of the Park with a small lake view. It is a very beautiful and impressive site and worth the visit.

Interesting structure to take a look as it is an important part of Hannover's history. Offices and restaurant now occupy the building but you could still go into the main lobby to have a look.

Luckily the Rathaus seems to have survived the destruction of World War 2. Its very impressive and there is the option to go to the top of the dome which we opted not to do. The main entrance hall gives an impression of the solidity of this massive "pile". There are scale models of the city showing its development during... More
