Hannover's New Town Hall
Every city has its landmarks and Hannover, of course, is no exception. These next few days while I'm here, I will show you some of them.Hannover's Neues Rathaus
(New Town Hall) was built between 1901 and 1913. It's always referred to as 'new' because the old one from the 15th century is still standing in the City Center.
There are two main trivia facts about this structure that stand out for me:
1. The ground was too marshy to support it, so 6,026 beech piles had to be rammed into the ground to provide a firm foundation.
2. On its official opening, 20 June 1913, the town clerk was able to report proudly to Kaiser William II, "All paid for in cash, Your Majesty!"
