"Welcome to HANNOVER" Hannover by Leipzig

Hannover Travel Guide: 660 reviews and 2,143 photos

Hannover, situated on the Leine River, was chartered in 1241 and had not played a big role until 1386 when the city joined the Hanseatic League. In 17th century the town became residence of the British royal family. Hannover was badly damaged in World War II and many modern structures were erected next to several old reconstructed buildings.
Today, Hannover has 520,000 inhabitants, is capital of Lower Saxony and an important economic centre - is annual industrial trade fair is world's largest trade fair.

To be honest, before I visited Hannover in order to attend the VT meeting, I was quite sceptic about this town. I was told that the town does not have much to offer. Being there I had the honor to be guided through the city by some locals (VT member nepalgoods and her partner) and was totally surprised that there are a lot of nice corners.

Nice and helpful website:http://www.stadtrundgang.hannover.de/index.html

    Bin bislang immer nur durch Hannover durchgefahren... Der Flohmarkt würde mich reizen!!! Hab von Leuten gehört, die mit der U-Bahn nicht klar kamen, das scheint aber weniger an der U-Bahn gelegen zu haben...

    Kennst du dieses dicke Polyglott-Buch "Wo Deutschland am schoensten ist?" - darin ist Hannover nicht einmal erwaehnt...
