As one of the Hanover district’s largest communities, the town of Langenhagen boasts a rich culture and a local legacy. Its relatively recent affiliation with other small villages to create the municipality of Langenhagen means it has a modern and dynamic attitude to development. Although primarily a place for people to live, Langenhagen offers travellers an inviting atmosphere and rich cultural programme of theatre, film and dance.
One of the town’s most interesting artistic expressions is the Concentration Camp Memorial, an austere and industrial monument that commemorates the lives of those lost in the Hanover district’s concentration camp. It is a perfect place in which to indulge in a moment of quiet contemplation.
Langenhagen’s most impressive religious structure is the Catholic Church of our Lady, stout and authoritative Romanesque building that houses an incredibly impressive altarpiece. The church is steeped in a rich history that can be discovered on the interesting information panels inside.
Enjoy Langenhagen’s cosmopolitan cuisine with a visit to its most exquisite eatery, the Ristorante Paladino. Revered by guests and locals alike, the fine food transports the taste buds to the warm, Mediterranean climate of Italy with tender roasted meats, crisp and flavoursome pizzas and creamy garlic sauces. Sip a class of crisp chardonnay for a perfect accompaniment to your majestic meal. (Walsroder Str. 71 30851 Langenhagen, Germany)
