Every year international industries meet at the Hanover Fair and at the Cebit Techno Fair. Beyond the business world there is another Hanover! The newly-renovated city center, with its shop windows, cafes, art objects, and bubbling fountains is a paradise in which to stroll and relax. The Georgstraße and the Karmarschstraße are Hanovers exclusive shopping arcades. You'd have to walk far for butter, but you can find a gold watch for EUR 25.000 just around the corner. The one-time charm of the old town is best seen in the Kramerstraße, which has been restored into a sort of half-timbered museum.
King Ernst August sits on his high horse (as a memorial) that Hanover erected in 1861 in front of the train station. This memorial has been a meeting place for generations. One meets "under the tail" at the back side of the statue. While waiting, tourists may wonder about the thick red line they see painted on the sidewalk. This unusual line winds around the city center, broken by mysterious circles and numbers, and even disappears under the earth in places. Whoever follows this line will discover 4668 meters of trail, laid down by city officials, which leads one to the important sights and historical places in the city center.
The Maschsee, a lake in the middle of the town at the beautiful Rathaus, is a good place to take a break. If you have enough time, a trip into the countryside is even more restful, with attractions such as the Welfenresidenz in Wolfenbüttel, or Polle, a painterly village with romantic little streets in the valley of the Weserberge.
Overnight accommodation in Hanover does not have to be expensive! We offer different categories of exhibition rooms and apartments close to the exhibition centre, as well as simple and nice private rooms and apartments for EUR 22.80 per person per night, excluding breakfast (outside exhibition periods). bed & breakfast offers private accommodation in walking distance of the firework display that takes place each summer in Hanover.
I could go on and on about Hanover. One thing, it doesn't have to be expensive, not even during big fairs. We can arrange guest rooms with breakfast, centrally located or outside the city.
We will be pleased to greet you here!
