Really enjoyed strolling around the grounds. There is a lovely lake and the Rathaus architecture is nice.

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

great for a hour or two, when you enter you have models in the centre showing Hannover from its humble begginings through to today, how it has grown and how iy was almost distryed during the war, then rebuilt. It is worth if visiting spending the time and money to go to the top of the town hall the views... More

From the outside the building is magnificent with a lot of nice details. However the real surprise is inside. I suggest to go in, I will not share to many details because I do not want to spoil the surprise. Go to the first floor via the main staircase and go back down via the smaller round staircase. When going... More

Beautiful building inside and out. A MUST DO is the trip to top of Dome. Great cafe/restaurant too. Models of city are well worth seeing too.

We randomly arrived at the town hall during a wedding which was quite strange but fun! We were still able to walk around and see the amazing interior. The queue to go to the dome was an hour long so we waited until the next day and arrived early. The view was spectacular and for only 3EUR each it is... More

Our visit to this site was a real surprise. We expected it to be an outside - view only of its nice façade. Usually, we shy away from climbing towers that have stairs only, and we were delighted to find that this Town Hall tower offered an elevator. It is small, and only 5-6 people can ride it at a...

The Rathaus offers amazing Hannover city's Ariel view (3D map) before and after world war. You can clearly identify and see how the city was looked like before and after world war. It's really fascinating. If u are in Hannover , do visit this place!!!
