    The New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus) rises with its beauty in the center of Lower Saxony capital just by a small pond and big Maschsee Lake.
    It's the seat of Municipal government being built in the early 20c, replacing the old medieval Town Hall which is in Altstadt (old town).
    Visiting is totally free except climbing the Dome. Amazing and rich in details architecture both, outside and inside.
    Most interesting I found four big and precise models of Hannover over ages.
    The first is from 1689 as a fortified medieval town. After that two models from 1939 and 1945 show the city before and after WWII when it was totally demolished, and finally the fourth one represents the modern and prosperous city of today.
    Free to visit are also terrific mosaics on the first floor.
    Climbing the Dome is paying few Euros, but problem is the waiting time (in our case over an hour) so we didn't make it.

    Great fun. Boat ride was peaceful, it was great to see the animals so close. I think there were 3 large playgrounds which the kids could explore. Hours went by quickly. If I were local, I'd go there almost every other weekend!

    The public transport was excellent and easy to navigate using a google map. The food was delicious and not very pricey. The people were kind and super helpful.

    First weekend of June had totally clear skies and above average temperatures so no wonder it was packed with people.
    It's a big lake with many activities on it and around it. At the northern end just cross the road and walk to the New Town Hall by the reflecting pond.

    Several cities in northern Germany (Berlin, Hamburg, Hannover,...) have such Churches left in the state they were in 1945. Purpose is to remind people on war devastations never to happen again.
    Aegidienkirche is set in the very center and there used to be a Church here from 12 century onwards which was several times rebuilt over centuries. Intense allied bombing 1943-45 left the Tower standing but the Church roofless. Beneath the bell tower you can find a bell from Hiroshima as a present from Japanese government.

    This forest is highly recommended for walking, biking, jogging or just chill and get fresh air. Best time to visit in the midday.

    It was nice, I just wish that I would have known upfront that the basement was closed. I would also suggest creating more sitting areas for the disabled/old/pregnant/tired people amongst us.

    We were there last weekend. Very pleasant experience and a tremendous show. It was a modern performance and the light effects were amazing. Very good performers.

    I haven't had chance to visit the bigger garden yet (Herrenhauser garten). This place is really good if you have less time to explore. They have a lot of tropical plants and trees. Don't miss the cactus garden.

    Really great place to see underwater creatures, quite exciting place for kids. Not very big but they have very beautiful collection. Worth spending an afternoon.

    Next door to the Marktkirche is this medieval Town Hall. It's in classic German red brick with high gables - a very nice and eye catching edifice.
    However, I don't know its purpose today as the City offices moved to the imposing new Town Hall. Anyway, a nice photo op while strolling Hannover Altstadt.

    This is a classic German central square Church rebuilt in red bricks you're about to see in almost every German town.
    Marktkirche means the main Market square Church, so you can easily conclude it's here from the medieval era - in this case from 14 cent.
    It's a Protestant Church (with Martin Luther statue in front), so don't expect lavish interiors. Add to that WWII allied bombing devastations and you're about to see a simple, yet beautiful high vaulted Gothic brick interior along with some modern art bronze statues inside and a golden triptych. Anyway, it's worth entering and it's free.
