City rails 3, 7, 9 / 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9
Due to the enormous time-constraints during the construction of the first tunnel segment (Hauptbahnhof-Waterloo), the stations Waterloo and Hauptbahnhof were in the first instance designed functionally. The central station "Hauptbahnhof" was later improved: The French artist Jean Dewasne created murals in the "Hauptbahnhof" station, which are geared to French cathedrals and windows. On the south side the artist used warmer colours for simulating the effect of natural daylight.
The station Waterloo appears in new splendour since 2014. Here, the city history of Hanover is being told clearly and chronologically on 16 blackboards in the form of picture collages. You can see for example the "Nanas", the "Göttinger Sieben" and the cup heroes of Hannover 96. Information boards on the pillars additionally explain the most important constructions, events and personalities of Hanover. Previously it was inornate and contemporarily decorated, but now the Waterloo station is much brighter, more friendly and lively.
