This is one of the grandest city halls I have ever seen. So grand I thought it must have been the state parliament building.

I didn't go in but the Rathaus itself is big and beautiful. The surrounding area was extremely beautiful as well. Green was everywhere and would be perfect for a morning or afternoon walk.

The city hall (Neues Rathaus) is a must visit place in Hannover. Next to the Maschteich and Maschsee it offers great opportunities to take amazing pictures from outside. The entrance hall has 4 3D models of different periods (current,1939, 1945 and 16xx). If you look up and down the hall you will be very impressed. There are many details and perspectives to discover. In the entrance area you will find a tourist information where you can buy tickets for 3 Euros (adults), 2 Euros (concession) to take the lift to the top. The lift is inclined by 15 degrees and is unique worldwide.

The employee handling the elevator is very friendly and explains the special elevator and answers questions. The view off Hannover from the top (100m) is really amazing.
A minor drawback: If there are a lot of visitors you might wait a longer time, because the lift carries a maximum of 5 people per ride.
Definitely visit the new city hall!!!

Beautiful architecture and nice view from the top of the tower to see hanover and understand it more. It's strongly recommended but better to have your GF/BF with you i found it really romantic up there for some reason!

It happen to be that I was there in the same day of the queen of England's BD, and they where actually celebrating that with a drums, trumpets, officers in uniforms and princesses or whatever from the Hannover royalty family! I enjoyed the show and learned about the history of the city.
