Visited in Feb but would like to go again but in summer as you get to see more and do more. It was still a nice day to go and explore the zoo. It took about two hours to see everything although you could spend much longer. Definitely recommended if you are going to Hannover specially with family.

Rathaus is a place you must visit when in Hannover. The nearby lake and the building itself in and out are beautiful. A place to remember !

It is the main attraction in Hannover, you can go around event if Rathaus is closed. You can go to the tower or simply go inside for free.

After a construction period of twelve years, it was ceremonially inaugurated on July 20, 1913. The building is a grand but elegant structure from outside with many eye-catching architectural styles, best described as eclectic, and diverting details. With a rich history,... More

Cafe/Bistro hidden out the back over looking at the water was good to find after a walk round the lake. The walks about 45 mins and is worthwhile

A lovely building with panoramic views from the roof. Take the small lift which costs a few euros to the top. The lift shaft is at an angle so it's a strange experience on the way up and down! The views over Hannover and the Maschsee Lake are lovely and provide good photo opportunities. There are also four large models... More
