Han­over - The State Cap­it­al


Authentic, genuine, relaxed: Hanover offers the perfect mix for visitors! The city centre is impressive with its metropolitan flair. The striking Marktkirche church and the Old Town Hall are the most southern examples of northern German red brick Gothic architecture.

The pedestrian zone is a real shoppers' paradise. In the Old Town, visitors can stroll through medieval alleyways, discover exclusive boutiques or relax on the banks of the Leine river or in one of the city’s many cafés.

Tourists can see the crème de la crème of garden art in the Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen. And with its elaborately designed animal enclosures, Zoo Hanover is Germany’s most spectacular animal park. The various districts of the city are effervescent and charming. Exciting events such as the International Fireworks Competition, Maschseefest (Maschsee Lake Festival), the world’s largest Schützenfest (Marksmen’s Fun Fair) or the German Christmas markets attract huge numbers of tourists to Hanover all year round. Whether you travel by car, train or aeroplane, Hanover’s central location is one of its biggest selling points.
