Hannover City Hall (Rathaus), Hannover
(4.8/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1913, Hannover City Hall (Rathaus) is the seat of the city mayor. The striking building is reminiscent of a centuries-old castle. The lobby features four scale models of Hannover as it was in the Middle Ages, before World War II, after the destruction of 1945, and how the city looks today. After you explore the rest of the building's ornately decorated rooms, you can take the elevator up to the dome. From its 100 m (328 ft) high observation deck, you can see the whole city and--on clear days--even the Harz Mountains. The town hall is also home to a restaurant serving regional and international cuisine. See Hannover City Hall (Rathaus) and all Hannover has to offer by arranging your trip with our Hannover holiday planner.

  • Entrance reduced for students, you should go with time and with patience, because it only has an elevator that leads to the third floor and then have to wait they climb 5, there is no ability for more, the elevator does not go up straight. You can see all Hanover, precious facings and happens cold but it is worth. In the winter season closes.
