The Neues Rathaus or in English ‘ New City Hall’ is a city hall in the German city of Hannover. The city hall was opened in 1913 and immediately took over duties from the Old City Hall. The New City Hall is a fine example of architecture from the Wilhelm II reign, the magnificent castle-like building was built to an eclectic style. It stands at a height of 96 metres at its highest point, which is a part of the building that has an observation deck that's open to the public which offers elevated views over the city. The building was heavily damaged during the Second World War but has since been restored to its former glory.
The City Hall is situated within the Maschpark park and garden. If travelling by car, parking is limited to street parking. If travelling on public transport, the best option is to travel using the underground subway to ‘Hannover Aegidientorplatz’, which is a short walk away from the city hall.
Opening Times and Admission
The city hall is open on weekdays 10am-6pm but closed on weekends. The observation deck is open seven days a week and is priced at 3 euros.
