This shot was taken at the snow festival too, I have only cropped the right handside, because some trees were in the way. Yes, it was 16 metres in height and very impressive.
The real Hannover is well known as a city of trade fairs. It gained its reputation when the world's fair was held there in the year 2000. In 1901, the construction of this Renaissance-style city hall began and it was finally completed in 1913. However it was destroyed repeatedly during the wars, thereafter, the present building was rebuilt as the fourth reconstruction. Now it stands as the symbol of the city and is also a very popular tourist attraction.

Great shot! It's even more beautiful than the original in my hometown :) The combination of white and blue is almost magical.

An impressive sculpture, i like the detail of the statues and the green hue. I've seen on TV they make an entire hotel out of ice in Sweden i think.
Its interesting that they made a model of something from Europe, i thought this was taken in Denmark.

I really enjoyed this series of photos. Thanks for bringing the sights to us Daniel!
I like this one best because of the clear texture of the ice and the oh-so-delicate architecture.
Very well done!

A very nice view that fits very well to the present season here in Europe, I like the details of snow and ice and all this rising over a nice blue sky.
Have a nice day,
