Hanover - the center of the city of Hanover, capital of Lower Saxony and one of the 15 largest cities in Germany. Since its first mention in 1150, the Lower Saxony metropolis has become a major city with an international flair and is home to the largest exhibition center in the world. World-famous trade fairs such as the Hanover Fair (since 1947) and the Cebit, shape the image of Hannover as a place of measurement! As a central hub of the German railway network, Hannover also offers an exposed logistical location for meetings and conferences.
Old Town or Fair - the two top locations of Hanover
If you want to be centrally located in Hannover, there are numerous accommodation options in the old town. From here you can easily reach all the important Hanover attractions, including the Lower Saxony Landtag, known as Leineschloß, the Künstlerhaus or the Marktkirche in the heart of the city! For trade fair visitors, many renowned hotel chains and privately run hotels offer their services and beds around the fairground. Due to the perfect infrastructural connection to the city, the Messehotels are also attractive hostels for tourists who want to explore Hanover outside the trade fair. This makes it possible to make a hotel reservation in the city center or the surrounding area of Hanover, without making any compromises when it comes to the trade fair.
Hannover offers its guests far more than the world's largest exhibition grounds. For example, the new town hall, which was built on 6026 beech piles and is first perceived by many viewers as a castle, is one of the most popular photographs of Hanover. Also worth a visit is the Herrenhäuser Gärten, a garden complex consisting of various large-scale park installations, all of which are assigned to a different theme. The Grand Garden, which is one of the best preserved baroque gardens in Europe, stands out in this area. More than half a million people stroll through the Hanover parks every year.
