In case you were wondering: Traditionally Hanover was the English spelling for the German Hannover. In recent years the German version has been adopted internationally.
While Hannover doesn't attract the great tourism fanfare of neighbouring cities such as Bremen and Hamburg, the city stands proud in the state of Lower Saxony - offering a unique perspective on northern Germany.
Certainly what stands out in Hannover is the modern architecture. During World War II, Hannover was heavily bombed by Allied Forces, which forced the city to undertake a major rebuild project across the region. As a community, Hannover lost many important heritage buildings, but regrouped to raise the city back to prominence. Today, Hannover supports more than half a million people, has a strong reputation for industrial technology, is well-known for its stance on environmental protection and hosts Germany’s second largest Oktoberfest. Hannover might not be the largest city in Germany, but it just might be the one that showcases the best of German society.
While the history of Hannover dates back to medieval times, the bombings of World War II mean that most of the city’s architecture is post 1945. Of course, this isn't always a bad thing, with New Town Hall a great example. Originally erected in 1913, the magnificent castle-like building is a major landmark in Hannover. However, it was heavily damaged before rising from the ashes in the 1950s. Now, the Wilhelm II style building with a 100m observation platform represents the strength of this city through even the toughest times.
Hannover is also known for its green, open spaces and deep connection to the environment. As such, make sure you check out these lush landscapes:
