Hannover's Opera House & Jewish Memorial
Another big Hannover landmark is the Opernhaus (Opera House)
, a neo-classical structure created by the famous architect, Georg Ludvig Laves, and built from 1845-1852. It can accommodate an audience of 1,220 people and is considered among the top 20 opera houses in the world. It's just a couple blocks away from the Hauptbahnhof
In 1994 a Jewish Memorial was erected alongside the Opera House (foreground structure), recalling the Jews who were persecuted and deported during the Nazi period.
I took this pic in March of 2005 (not this trip)! Two landmarks for the price of one.
