A very impressive monument, maybe most impressive in Hannover. If you visit Hannover you must go to view Waterlooplatz, is just at 2 tram station from central station. The only negative aspect is because local authorities made a refugee camp near the monument.

Great beer garden in Waterlooplatz where the atmosphere was as good as the beer. Plenty of different variations of food also

Unless you have a specific activity or event planned, you can easily see and enjoy this site from a tour bus. It's a large, grassy area that is pretty, with a large column/statue, but beyond that, it's not anything that you would schedule considerable time...More
