Start your observation of the city's attractions from making a visit to the New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus), the construction of which lasted for 12 years and was completed in 1913. Nowadays several halls of the town hall have been converted into a museum, the main exhibits of which are miniature models of the city. Visitors of the museum can see how the city looked right after its foundation, what buildings were in its territory in the Middle Ages. The museum exhibits a miniature model of the modern look of the city. The Town Hall is one of the most striking architectural sites of Hanover. One of its domes is equipped with an observation deck that provides visitors with a scenic panorama of the city.
The Old Town Hall (Altes Rathaus) is a no less interesting attraction. The construction of this architectural monument lasted for more than a hundred years. The oldest part of the town hall has survived till our days even though it was completed in the beginning of the 15th century. Despite the fact that some wings were added to the Old Town Hall much later, the building looks very harmonious. St. Egidio Church is among the most notable religious sights of the city. This church was built during the Middle Ages. In 1943, during the war, the church was seriously damaged, but later it was rebuilt. Today the church is considered a major monument of victims of the bloody war.
