Where to Stay

The elegantly restored Old Town has a variety of accommodation on offer

Hanover is relatively small city that’s easy to get around. The central area is roughly divided into 4 districts, named for their points on the compass, gathered around Hanover-Mitte - the main city centre. Mitte is a great place to start searching for an apartment, choose between the immaculate New town (Neustadt); where you’ll be surrounded by shops and restaurants with plenty of parks and open space, or the beautifully restored Old Town (Altstadt) where quaint, half timbered houses and the magnificent town hall and Opera House give a nod to the city’s past. South of the centre, the area around the massive Maschsee Lake is a beautiful area to stay in, Northern Hanover, where the city’s famous university is located also boasts some great accommodation options, plus a beautiful park with some surviving Georgian architecture to admire.

Things to Do

Galleries, bistros and cafes line Hanover's quaint streets.

When you visit Hanover, the old town is likely the best place to start, there is a relaxed atmosphere here with a wonderful selection of boutiques and antique dealers to browse, along with art galleries, bistro’s and cafes. From here, head south along the Leine River and you’ll come to Hanover’s new town hall, and then through pretty Maschpark to the museum district, where the Lower Saxony State Museum hosts an interesting collection profiling the region’s history, while the adjacent Sprengel Museum exhibit’s a selection of cutting edge modern art from around the world. The dome of the new town hall can be accessed via a unique curving lift, and offers a fantastic view of the city and Maschsee Lake from its 97m high viewing platform. To the north of the city, a tour of the beautiful Herrenhausen Baroque Gardens is a great way to get more insight into Hanover’s history.

Eating and Drinking

The streets that surround the Old town hold a host of fine eating establishments

Hanover has a comprehensive selection of places to eat and drink. The streets around the old town are lined with restaurants serving every type of cuisine you can think of. For a traditionally German dining experience, try the Ernst August Brauhaus on Schmiedestraße. German cities are typically well known for their beers, and Hanover does not disappoint on this front, with bars dotting the city centre serving a great range of Bavarian brews and specialties from Germany’s other regions. Südstadt, the area to the south of the old town, is a good place to go in search of a drink, and also boasts a great selection of restaurants. To the north of the city, just east of the River, is where much of the city’s top nightlife can be found, including the ultra cool eve klub and the lively Heartbreak Hotel.

Getting Around

Buses, trams and trains make Hanover an easy city to navigate

The city of Hannover is served by an excellent public transport network, consisting of buses, trams and trains. The transport network runs from 6am until around 1am, with reduced services into the night. Visitors might benefit from getting the ‘Hannover Card’, which offers unlimited access to the entire region’s public transport for one to 3 days, with group options available and discounted entry to some attractions. The city centre is fairly spread out, so it’s unlikely you’ll be able to see it all on foot, however it is flat and there are plenty of cycle lanes, so renting a bicycle can also be a good option.

Hanover Hauptbahnhof, the main train station, is a large transport hub where regional, national and intercontinental services. Hannover’s International airport is a base for several major European airlines, with cheap flights available all over the continent.
