Experience the pinnacle of perfection in garden design in the Herrenhausen Gardens. Hannover Adventure Zoo is one of Germany’s most spectacular wildlife parks thanks to its elaborately designed habitats. Relax by Lake Maschsee or let the sheer diversity of the Hannover holiday region surprise you – such as Marienburg Castle, still today the ancestral seat of the Guelphs who ruled Hannover and Great Britain for 123 years in personal union.

The different areas of the city showcase their lively and charming nature: from the vibrant student areas of Linden and Nordstadt to the trendy district of List with its Art Nouveau buildings. Top events attract countless visitors to Hannover every year like the International Fireworks Competition, the Marksmens’ Funfair, Hannover’s maritime summer spectacle Lake Maschsee Festival or the Christmas Markets.
