I went to the city hall and it seems there is nothing in the interior. However, when you go up to the top and see the city view, you would not regret coming to the city hall. The ticket for the visit to the top must be purchased at the ground floor of city hall. There is 360 degrees view... More

Inside the big hall you´ll find models of the city in different times of history but having good weather you should not miss to get a view over the city from the top. The elevator going up is a technical rarity because it doesn´t go up directly but on a rail connected to the inside of the cupola - very... More

Visiting the beautiful town hall and surrounding grounds is well worth a visit and free to the public. You can also visit the bell tower by taking the unusual lift up for three euros.

A striking building near to the Maschsee The Rathaus gives the best views over the City from its cupola summit - which is accessed from a unique parabolic lift which takes you up the side of the Dome. Inside, on the ground floor, are four striking models of the City from the seventeenth century to the present day. Quite moving.

Not able to go inside since i came late. Just walked around this building. The building itself was very beautiful and huge. There is a beautiful pond behind this building which is a nice place to spend time with friends and family.

A excellent and historical building with a great look as architecture. One of the most of visiting from this place is visiting of city maquettes which have been built to show the view of Hannover city in different ages and years. Especially the view of Hannover during WWII (world war II) and comparing it with new view of city is... More

The building itself is 'just' old majestic rathaus. Anyway there are 2 things why you may visit it: - 4 city models (oldest [hundreds years back] and then before and after 2nd war and modern city) - tower with the best view and funny lift to get there

Love visiting this place for the free bathrooms, classy cafe, amazing models of the city development including the war damage, and the view over the pond and gardens behind it. Best part is the tower elevator for €3 where you get the best 360° view of the city!
