If you're interested in the history of Hannover, it's nice to make a tour in the city hall, in which you can find the models of the city. From the models, you may imagine how the city was devastated in WWII.

Neues Rathaus is an imposing building which was built in 1913, it is in a prominent position in Maschpark and is a 10 minute walk from Hannover Altsadt. The building is one of many in the area and is a great landmark to stop off at when strolling down to Maschsee where the Rathaus is also visible. Well worth a visit.

Free to get in and there is a small tourist info area near the front entrance with helpful staff. There are 4 large models of the city from 1600's, 1939, 1945 and present day... very moving...
The dome lift was not available as it is closed in winter. They do guided tours (fees) by arrangement but I didn't ask for one this time. Disabled access on request from the staff. Worth going into just to see the main lobby areas and the models.

The "old" Ratshaus (there is an even older one) looks like a fairy tale castle, nestled in a picturesque park near downtown Hanover.

When you visit the town hall, a visit to the top of the dome is a requirement. From the third floor, you will take an elevator which actually moves at a slight diagonal, to reach the top of the dome. Views from the top are spectacular.
