From ground-breaking architecture and infrastructure to highly attractive local recreation areas in the surrounding region, the state capital of Niedersachsen boasts many interesting contrasts. The cluster of around 50 different theatres, the state opera company, and numerous museums and galleries attract thousands of art and culture lovers every year to the many high-quality performances and international art exhibitions.
One of the most popular shopping streets in Germany—the Georgstraße—draws people from far and wide for stylish shopping combined with relaxing in any of the numerous cozy cafés in the historic Old Town. Hannover’s success as a trade show venue is largely attributable to its central location in the middle of Germany and Europe – making the city a particularly attractive business location for domestic and international visitors.
Hannover not only boasts a very successful airport but also lies at the intersection of the most important German and European superhighways. And a region-wide public transport system links up the whole area and makes all the main tourist attractions quickly and comfortably accessible.
