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.

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.

A true architectural masterwork, the New Town Hall is one of Hannover’s most iconic landmarks and most sought-after photographs. 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
