Welcome to Hannover
A city rich in history, architecture, culture and cuisine, Hannover is the handsome heart of Lower Saxony. With a population of half a million, a compact city centre and a reliable public transport system, Hannover is an excellent choice for a short visit – but Hannover’s varied attractions will tempt you to stay longer than you planned.
Hannover’s History and Scenery
Head to the Neues Rathaus, the New City Hall, to appreciate its palatial architecture and the fine views over the city from its dome observation gallery. From here, you can stroll through Maschpark and enjoy the scenic lakes, the Maschteich and the Maschsee. The Marktkirche is a church with a characteristically German character, one of the country’s best examples of the brick Gothic style.
Sports and Entertainment in Hannover
The HDI Arena, just south of central Hannover, is home to the Bundesliga side Hannover 96, and provides guided tours and other activities. The neighbouring Schützenplatz is a large fairground with a varied calendar of sporting events and food and beer festivals.
Shopping in Hannover
Hannover is an excellent place to seek out those distinctively German gifts and souvenirs. The Ernst-August-Galerie is a large modern shopping plaza next to the main railway station. The Markthalle offers the very best in regional fresh produce, and the Weihnachtsmarkt is a pretty collection of Christmas Markets dotted around the town centre.
