Romantic Hotels in Hannover Old Town
Choose a romantic hotel in central Hannover and wander through picturesque streets flanked by half-timbered buildings, stopping for a coffee and a traditional butter cake in one of the countless cafes, bars and bistros. Stroll through the formal Grosser Garten, admire the botanical collections of the Berggarten, and round off the day with a romantic meal at one of the fine-dining restaurants in the Mitte district.
Days Out from Hannover
Thanks to an excellent public transport network, it’s easy to get from your romantic Hannover accommodation to the Lower Saxony countryside. Head south to discover Marienburg Castle, a Gothic dream set in stone and surrounded by beautiful courtyards, gardens and grounds. Explore the fairy-tale interiors and ascend the tower for sweeping views of the Leine valley. Marienburg is also available as a wedding venue.

Most of Hannover’s cultural attractions are located in and around the Mitte district. Hannover is particularly good for contemporary and 20th century art, with the Kunstverein Hannover, KUBUS Gallery and kestnergesellschaft all within easy reach of the city centre, and the excellent Sprengel Museum just to the south, beside the Maschsee lake.
Hannover’s Entertainment Scene
For a special evening out, book tickets for a show at the Hannover Opera House. The neoclassical building is impressive in its own right, and has a busy season of music and ballet which runs from September to June. Alternatively, head to GOP Variete Theater for comedy, dance and cabaret, or check the listings of the Swiss Life Hall, a major venue for German and international pop acts. Ask staff at your romantic hotel about the best way to secure tickets.
