Sights and attractions
If you want to explore Hanover, you should first pay a visit to the Neues Rathaus, or New Town Hall. The arched elevator to the Rathaus dome with magnificent views of the city is unique in Europe. Take the lift at a 17 degree angle to get the 98m high dome. The Baroque gardens at Schloss Herrenhausen attract visitors like a magnet. The extensive park complex is one of the best preserved in all of Europe, with the flair of the 17th century. There has also been a museum in the castle since 2013. The Lower Saxony State Museum will inspire culture fans with its collection of paintings and sculptures.
Nor should you miss a stroll though the small, but perfectly formed Old Town in the centre of the city. Traditional craftsmen’s houses, exclusive boutiques and cosy cafés await. A flea market also takes place every Saturday on the nearby Leinufer bank. Hanover zoo is an experience for all the family, with over 3,000 different kinds of animals, a summer luge run and seven fantastic themed worlds.
