Guest House

The modern Leibnizhaus allows the Universities, Academies and Colleges in Hannover to accommodate visiting scientists and their families in pleasant and multicultural surroundings.

Scientists can apply either through University or College institutes (LUH, MHH, TiHo, HMTMH, FHH) or through the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation. International visitors will be given priority.

Leibnizhaus offers 28 one- to four-room apartments and two shared apartments in three buildings on Holzmarkt 4-6. All apartments are fully furnished and equipped with bedsheets and linen, towels, cooking utensils, pottery, cuttlery etc. The 28 apartments include bathrooms (with a shower, no tub) and a kitchen or kitchenette. Washers and driers can be used free of charge. They are situated in the basement of the guesthouse. We have storage room for bycicles in the basement as well as a bikestand in the courtyard. Our caretakers look after the inventory and replace or repair items in case of need. A wireless internet connection and land line telephone is available in all apartments. There are no TV-sets or radios in the apartments, but aerial sockets allow for the connection of one. Laundry, cleaning and renovation will have to be paid by the end of a guest's stay. We do not offer maintenance cleaning.

We do accept guests who only search accomodation for a short period of time in exceptional cases. These accomodations cannot be promised far ahead of time, since the guest house is originally intended for longer stays, reaching from 6 months to 12  months.


In the following, you will receive information concerning the kinds of apartments available in Leibnizhaus. The pictures serve an explanatory function because few of our apartments are identical.

A two-room apartment, for example, would describe a living room, one bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a small hallway.
