The new Town Hall (completed 1913) is well worth a visit in Hannover. The inside is free to wander around, interesting architecture and 4 models of the city at different ages. You can take the lift up to the top of the tower but we didn't do this. The outside looks out onto a park area but is being renovated... More

There is a "4km" walking map of the city and coming to the Rathaus is worth the walk. This building is beautiful It also displays 4 models of Hannover over the centuries.

We visited the Rathaus on a break from a conference. The building is beautiful. It has lovely gardens around it with a pond. The back of the building is undergoing construction and can't be seen currently. They are hoping it will be completed by the end of May 2017. The inside was fantastic with 4 dioramas set up to show... More

It's a great place to visit because it combines the great architecture of the city hall with beautiful nature. There is an artificial lake in front of Rathaus. Also don't miss to go upstairs to enjoy the great view!

It is large, grand haus with nice green area and pond behind it. It is off the main ring road and some distance away from the city centre. It is located across the city centre opposite the HBF.

What a pretty park and area right in the middle of Hannover. Walking around the lake is really cool. Just a shame that when we visited (March 17) the city hall was under renovation and covered in scaffolding. I could see how pretty it would be without this though.

No need to comment or speak about the "Rathaus" , it is just incredible. What I personally love when it comes to buildings, the huge old European style, with those small statues... You got to love that ! But what I loved about this place wasn't only the building itself, but also the park next to it, green and clean... More

Ecstatic architecture of this beautiful and 'calm' building. The period I visit it was under maintenance/conservation? and half of the front was scaffolding for renovation

We went there to get into the Panoramic Lift, but it was closed due to some maintenance, but he staff there they asked us to roam around inside the building which had some exiting figures inside, dont miss it.
