Hannover Tourism

Hannover isn’t the first on everyone’s lips when thinking about places to visit, and that’s just sad. A visit to this city can be short bur very, very sweet. It started life as a fisherman’s village that quickly became a thriving trading town thanks to strategic location. It got all kinds of hell bombed out of it by the Allies in the WWII but parts of it bounced back to become a natural delight (the parks and gardens are unbelievably beautiful). Today it’s called EXPO City, and it also hosted the 2006 Football World Cup. It’s the capital of Lower Saxony. Always festive, if you time your visit to Hannover right, you’ll be able to tap into one or more of its many celebrations.
