Hannover City Hall (Rathaus), Hannover

4.8
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.

  • The façade of the building only opened after restoration. In some places there are still remnants of the forests. The dome climb failed, only saw the Hall of the first floor and stairs. In the Hall exhibited 4 Hanover layout of different time: 17 21, 1939 1945 year year and our time.

  • Ok. Definitely worth visiting if you are in Hannover. Beautiful architecture. Not much else to say. Worth a walk there though.  more »
  • When I come to Hanover there are places that have to review, such as the Central Station (Hauptbahnhof), Kropke, Steintor, the cemetery opened around Steintor and excellent market Markthalle station. But none like Rathaus, a place that always leaves me impressed, not by architecture (excellent) but especially the various representations of the city, and especially to see what she looked like in 1939 and as she was after the bombing that was the target at the end of the 2. Great War. I'm glad you recovered. It is worth visiting and think ....
