Built in 1913, The New Town Hall 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. Use our Hannover trip planner to arrange your visit to The New Town Hall and other attractions in Hannover.

Very nice town hall from the outside, unfortunately it was closed when I arrived so I couldn't enter.

Nice town hall in the middle of Hannover. Only 100 years old though. There are several 3D models of the city from 4 different time periods. Entry is free, but mostly you can only visit the main hall. Worth a visit, but not too special all in all.
Beautiful town hall with lovely scale models in the main hall. Shame large parts of it were closed due to covid. Will visit for sure when allowed to look around more.
