About Altes Rathaus

The Altes Rathaus was the first town hall in the German city of Hanover. First built in the old city district in 1410 and extensively restored in 1953 and 1964 after heavy bomb damage in World War II, it is the oldest secular building in the city. In 1874, the city administration moved out of the building. However, ceremonial events such as the conferring of honorary citizenship still take place in the banqueting hall.
