    Hannover New Town Hall

    by chancay Updated Apr 25, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Built 1913, with a wonderful view from the tower. You go up there with an old elevator. The diagonal lift in the Townhall dome is unique in Europe. At a 15-degree angle it covers the 43 metres up tolthe gallery at the top of the dome. From this vantage point one can enjoy a marvellous view of the whole city, even as far as the Harz Mountains when visibility is good.
    Amazing. Downstairs in the townhall you find samples of Hannover city in the years 1689, 1939, 1945 and today.

    Fondest memory: Four scale models of Hannover are on permanent display under the nearly one hundred metre high dome of the townhall lobby, showing the city as it was in the Middle Ages, before World War II, the destruction of 1945 and the townscape of today. These models are always immensely popular amongst the visitors.

    Rathaus, Town Hall, built in...

    Favorite thing: Rathaus, Town Hall, built in 1901-1913

    Fondest memory: The city hall was built in a grand style. Inside the city hall, you can see the models to illustrate the development of the city and you can also understand how the city was destroy in WWII and how it was rebuilt. You can take the interesting elevator to the top of the tower in a curved way. From there, the view of Hannover was beneath you. Especially looking at the back side of the city hall, you can enjoy the beautiful view of Maschsee. We also enjoyed our walk around the pond at the back of the city hall.
