The capital of Lower Saxony has a lot to offer.
For one thing, Hanover is a very green city, as there are parks, gardens and recreational areas everywhere. Worth mentioning are also especially the city forest Eilenriede, the Welfengarten, the Georgengärten and the Herrenhäuser Gärten. Furthermore, there is also a lot of water in Hanover, as there are the Leine, the Ihme, the Maschsee, numerous lakes and ponds.
Moreover, Hannover can neither be described as a stressful big city nor as a boring small city, but as something in between. Everything here can actually be reached quite easily by public transport, by bike or even on foot.
The city districts all have different characters, which all together form the overall picture of Hanover. The Hanoverians are basically happy to travel throughout the city and do not stiffen to their (residential) quarter. There it can be that one lives in Linden and goes to the shopping in the city centre or to a café in the List or from the Nordstadt to the weekly market in Linden.
Moreover, there is always something going on in Hannover. Throughout the year there are some great events. These include the Maschsee festival, the international fireworks competition, the small festival in the Great Garden, several street and district festivals or the Fête de la Musique.
The many students also ensure a turbulent life in Hannover and make it a predominantly young city.
In addition, the local transport network in Hanover is also very well developed. The central transfer point where all lines meet is the Kröpke directly in the city centre. Altogether there are tickets for three zones. Zone A is for the city area of Hanover. If your location is in the surrounding area, you can book one or two additional zones.
Hanover has some great sights to offer you, which you may also come across if the location you booked is near here.
When it comes to sights, the first thing that has to be mentioned is the new city hall and the Maschpark that is located behind it.
The new city hall is a landmark of the city and a very popular photo motif, because through its magnificent decorations and the towers it looks like a small castle.
In addition, there is the Herrenhausen Palace with the adjacent Herrenhausen Gardens. These consist of several partial gardens, whereby the centrepiece is the beautiful baroque garden in front of the castle, which is also called the "Great Garden".
Another garden is the Georgengarten. This garden is connected to the castle in the direction of the city centre. Opposite is also the Welfengarten, which also belongs to the ensemble of the Herrenhäuser Gardens. The Welfengarten and the Georgengarten were laid out in the style of an English landscape garden, i.e. with many walking paths, open spaces and large trees. Together they form a recreational area around the Leibniz University in Hannover.
Furthermore there is the Maschsee. This is the most popular recreation area in Hannover. The Maschsee invites on sunny days to a long walk around the lake or if you like you can rent a pedal boat and sail over the Maschsee. Popular open-air events also take place here in the summer months, especially the famous three-week Maschseefest.
The old town is also a very worthwhile place to visit in Hannover. This consists of beautiful medieval half-timbered houses. Overall, the Altstadt can be described as a picturesque district with small alleys and crooked houses, which gives it its own special charm. Today, the half-timbered houses are home to small boutiques, cute cafés, restaurants or even some bars.
Another famous place in Hannover is the Kröpke. This refers to the historic Kröpke clock in the middle of the city centre. The Kröpke is the central traffic junction of the local traffic, as well as the perfect starting point for a shopping tour through the Hanover city centre.
The equestrian statue directly at the station is also a popular meeting place. Because when the Hanoverians say they meet "under the tail" this place is meant.
Last but not least the popular "Limmern" has to be mentioned in this list. This describes the relaxed strolling, strolling, chatting, some delicious food and drink along the Limmerstraße. Linden is perfect for this, because it is known for its cosmopolitan way of life, the unusual gastronomy, cult, quaint or rocky bars and pubs, as well as for the weekly market on Saturday mornings.
The capital of Lower Saxony has a total of 51 districts, of which we would like to briefly introduce the most popular ones.
