Hanover City Guide
Hanover on the river Leine, is the capital of the federal state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), Germany, and was once by personal union the family seat of the Hanoverian Kings of Great Britain.
Visitors from all over the world are attracted to Hanover’s well-known events by the city’s good travel connections that are due to the autobahns A2 and A7 as well as the international airport with the nearby hotel complexes. Hanover is a fair town, hosting the computer fair Cebit every spring, causing the hotels in town to be fully booked even months before the event. If you do not wish to see the fair, there are numerous other possibilities to spend an interesting time with cultural or historic agenda.
Many of the Hanover hotels are located at the starting point for sightseeing trips, at the central station, the lake Masch or the inner city. A “Golden Thread“ has been laid out especially for the tourists visiting the city and emerges as a red line that leads you to all the popular and interesting sights. Since Hanover’s Leine Castle is seat of Lower Saxony’s Landtag as well as the site of numerous events, you should always book a hotel room well in advance.
Many business travellers are visiting Hanover, for it is the seat of the head offices of well renowned companies such as Bahlsen, Continental, Varta, Volkswagen utility vehicles and several insurance companies and financial service providers. For your recreational time we recommend you to see the gardens of castle Herrenhausen, the zoo or to stroll around the beautiful lake Masch. You should also go out in the evenings and enjoy the historic city’s rustic bars and extraordinary restaurants. Furthermore, you might spend your evening going to the opera house or seeing a vaudeville show.
