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.

and Hannover does this at Waterlooplatz. You will see it easily; it is a large column surrounded by cannon. Read the pillars for the names of heroic soldiers who fought in the battle. Imagine yourself going way back in time and look around at the...More

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
