We visited this attraction, and had a good look around. It is free entry, and has good disabled access, you can go up the tower for a small fee, but have to queue as they only allow five up at a time. I wouldn't advise it for those with a walking disability as it's a very narrow spiral staircase up... More

It is free to visit, but you must pay if you want to go up the tower. However, it has very strange and exciting diagonally going elevator, and the view is beautiful, so it is definitely worth visiting.

If you want a decent picture you should go around the park. The beautiful weather added to the entire experience.

There are many things that you can do at the New Town Hall. You can take a walk around its magnificent exterior, taking time to admire the domes, the architecture, the murals and the sculptures. You can go inside and see the 4 models of Hannover city - from the 17th century to today. You can see how the town... More

Many tour books include a walking tour of the rebuilt "Old Town". They basically follow a well-maintained red-line (red thread) in the road that travels around the Rathaus (New / Old Town Hall) and it's pond, down to Maschsee where you might see rowers and through the Masch park and Old Town that was built to look like it was...

This is a fantastic piece of architecture. Unfortunately we were too early to go inside. Make your way to the old city hall after this.

This place was not only architecturally amazing but very beautiful! It is open to the public and to visitors and has a lot of historical information inside as well. Large models of the city over it's history from the 1600's till now. Highly recommended!

Well worth paying the couple of euros to go to the top of the neues Rathaus. The view is absolutely stunning but definitely not suited to those with a fear of heights!
