The Gondel is located in the heart of Hanover and is probably the most historic restaurant in the city.

It was already known as “Café-Restaurant Georgspalast” in the 1920s. In 1948 after the war ended it was reopened by Wilhelm Hirte. At that time there was hardly anyone of distinction in show business who wasn’t guest in the Gondel. Paul Hörbiger and Gert Fröbe were here as guests such as Josephine Baker, Heinz Erhardt and even Zarah Leander.

In summer 2014 the gondola has been redesigned with its unique Gondel Bar. The combination of restaurant and bar makes the Gondel a popular location for small, large and exclusive celebrations.
