photoblog image Snapshots from Deutschland: Hannover

Snapshots from Deutschland: Hannover

… also the birthplace of the rock band Scorpions. Seen here is the Neues Rathaus or New Town Hall. I was quite surprised to know that it is a town hall, given its magnificent and imposing, castle-like appearance in the midst of a park and a water body in front of it. There is an observation platform, 100m high, accessible by an elevator that actually travels in a parabolic path along the dome. Unfortunately I missed both (the elevator ride as well as the view from the top).

this is real jigsaw material...
Fine building with great reflections
What a magnificent building, you were so lucky not many people were about.
Beautiful bright colors and symmetry. You've rendered your subject in the perfect light!
What a beautiful building, and the reflection in the water is great too. I like the story that goes with it; I would enjoy taking that parabolic elevator to the observation platform!
Very nice symmetry, color and reflection. Great shot!

The minute I opened this, Ayush, I recognized this place. I lived in Hannover two weeks of every month for two years. What a great image for this city. Here's my image from 2007 of the same place, 4 years ago:
