The Leibnizhaus was originally a 1499-built Renaissance townhouse in Hanover, named after the philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. He lived in the house from 1698 until his death in 1716. The building was destroyed during an air raid on Hanover in 1943 during the Second World War. Between 1981 and 1983, a reconstructed new building with the faithfully reconstructed façade was erected elsewhere.

The former house of the scholar Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, built in 1499, was destroyed in an air raid on Hanover in 1943. The reconstruction was carried out 40 years later with the facade true to the original at this point, since the original location was no longer available.The Leibnizhaus is named after the most important philosopher of the baroque and scholar Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, who lived and worked in an apartment on the first floor from 1698 until his death in November 1716.The Oscar Winter fountain in front of the Leibnizhaus is also a beautiful photo motif. It is called "wishing well" by the locals. A large ring is incorporated into the wrought-iron grille around the mighty fountain shell, which is said to make every wish come true when you turn it.
