Anzeiger-Hochhaus (Anzeiger High-Rise), Hanover

The Anzeiger-Hochhaus is a high-rise, 10-story building in the Mitte district of Hannover. Built in 1928, it was one of the first high-rise buildings built in the German Empire. The building is considered to be designed in the Brick Expressionism architectural style with elements of Gothic and Expressionist forms. Fritz Hoeger was the architect who designed this distinctive building.

It was built for publishing house Hannoverscher Anzeiger A. Madsack & Company. The building is where the German Magazines "Der Spiegel" and "Stern" were initially launched.

The Anzeiger-Hochhaus is one of the few buildings that was not destroyed during World War II. Because of its steel construction, it suffered from very little damage. Only the planetarium was burned, which was replaced with a movie theatre.

The building continues to be used by publishers and journalists. It is home to the HIS Hochschul-Informations-System and the TVN Group. RTL and SAT 1 have regional editorial offices in the building. It is also home to the country's highest cinema, which is held under the green dome.
