The Right Size City

The parameters of Hannover are just right. It’s not so big that you can get lost in it, nor is it so small that you can get bored. There is enough space for everyone. People have a small town personality, so they attract residents from surrounding cities. They are friendly and social, and the local and international cultures mix in clubs or get-together groups, which are ideal for meetings and getting to know other people.




Hannover festivals are the largest in the world. Whether it’s music or market, these festivals are an attraction nobody misses:

Marksmen’s Fair – This fair is a tradition that has been held for over 500 years. It’s a show that lasts 10 days, with drinks and snacks on the stalls, tombola and shooting galleries. Marksmen’s Fair attracts over a million people from all over the world.

The Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen – The Herrenhausen Gardens are historical gardens of art and culture. They offer small and international festivals, competition and exhibitions.

Maschsee Lake Festival – For culinary, artistic and fun-loving people, this festival has it all. For 19 days, visitors can enjoy activities on the lake, concerts, cabaret acts, food and drinks from all around the world.
Christmas Markets – 150 stalls, Christmas village and treats, medieval town as well as unique crafts bring out the true Christmas experience.



Although the city has a lot of green space, it also has plenty of urban locations, benches and street cafes. Parks, running trails, and English botanical gardens are located at the edge of the town. The popular place for relaxation, barbecues or jogging is Georgengarten Park. Also, Hannover has Eilenriede Forest, which is double the size of Central Park in New York.



The city is the center of Germany, and thanks to well-developed transport systems, everything is close by. The Hannover Card secures travel pass for all buses, trams and underground railways. Also, it provides tourist attractions and restaurants for lower prices. On the other hand, bicycle routes are very organized and often used. All around the city runs a path over 500 km long.




History is to be admired here. Originally called the Museum of Art and Science, Lower Saxony State Museum presents art from the medieval period to the 20th century. Additionally, the museum is devoted to archeology, ethnology and natural history so visitors can see many diverse exhibitions. Another part of Hannover’ rich history is the History Museum. It represents strong ties with English Royal Family and highlights cultural and religious aspects.

The former medieval building is a home of the New City Building. Even if the name is misleading, the range of architectural styles paints the history perfect. Another adventure this building has in store is the rare elevator with a fantastic view of the city while climbing 43 meters at an angle of 15 degrees to get to the 100 meter top of the dome.

Hannover is a jewel of Germany and a large tourist attraction of Europe. From May to October, the place is bursting with pleasant atmosphere and festivals. However, winters are very cold and temperature goes below 0, but that doesn’t make this land any less beautiful.

In addition, it is a paradise for vegetarians, vegans and plant-based eaters. It has many tasteful dishes, healthy restaurants, and vegan festivals organized by Vegan Hannover Group. The cost of living differs from the location and size of the apartment, but it’s affordable. In comparison to other cities, Hannover prices are relatively low. All these pros make it a lovely place to visit, and excited region to build a life.
