The now listed former Kurhaus Friedenstal at the address Hannoversche Straße 92 in Misburg-Nord

The Kurhaus Friedenstal in Hanover was a former garden restaurant well known far beyond the Hanover region and - under changing names - a dance and event location for the performance of concerts, for example . The building, which is now a listed building, is an example of the fact that buildings erected as early as the 19th century can only be saved from demolition in the long term after the current architectural monuments have been comprehensively recorded and published in the Federal Republic of Germany monuments topography . The building is located in the Misburg-Nord district on the corner property on Am Friedenstal Street , Hannoversche Strasse 92 and Uferzeile 1 and 2 on the Mittelland Canal .

The Kurhaus Friedenstal was built at the time of the German Empire in 1892 on the edge of a small forest called "Altes Gehäge " and was initially only designed as a garden restaurant . Only later was the facility expanded to include a dance hall and a bowling alley , but was not very popular in the first decades due to the remoteness of larger settlements . After all, was in the restaurant of a in autumn 1906 workers - Lesezirkel emerged local branch of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) of that community Misburg founded. However, even the later construction of the nearby Mittelland Canal did not bring any lasting revitalization of business to the Kurhaus Friedenstal.

Only after the bombing of Hannover during the Second World War and after the end of Nazism the Kurhaus Friedenstal was known far beyond the borders of the region: Since many women had lost their husbands in the war, while the were Wirtschaftswunderjahre on Saturday evenings on a regular basis of the so-called " widows ball "organized, up to 1000 to the war widows and hopeful men using taxis arrived and special buses.

After the rush of visitors to Kurhaus Friedenstal began to decline again in the 1970s, and Misburg was incorporated into the city of Hanover in 1974 , the concepts and names of the former garden bar changed. In 1978 the "Tanzpalast" opened, in 1982 the "Ballroom Blitz" and finally in 1986 the "Bel Air". But despite numerous live concerts by well-known stars and bands , the venue was closed and sold in 1987 and "[...] two residential buildings [...] in poor condition [and] half" empty houses were demolished. However, in order to save the building at Hannoversche Straße 92 from being demolished, it was placed under protection by the preservation authorities. In 1988 it was renovated in the original architectural style for various uses "[...] and expanded to include an I– to II-storey commercial building", so that a new extension offered the local food supplier a sales area of ​​around 860 m². However, when a structural change in the food retail industry took place after 2000, the City Council of Hanover approved the expansion of the retail space requested by the property owner to a total of 1320 m² in the New City Hall after a detailed analysis .
