Do you want to visit impressive attractions? You’re looking for the most famous shopping miles or enchanting boutiques for the perfect shopping trip? Or you’re interested in fascinating buildings of art and culture? We’ve compiled a selection for you.

    • Neues Rathaus

      Landmark
      No, it’s not a castle – even though it really looks like one. This magnificent 1913 building in the era of Wilhelm II is still the seat of the Lord Mayor. Situated in the Maschpark at the southern edge of the inner city, the New Town Hall is an extremely popular motif with photographers.

    • Herrenhäuser Gärten

      European garden art
      A wonderful garden ensemble awaits visitors, consisting of the Baroque Great Garden, the botanic Berggarten and the English Georgengarten. The Great Garden is one of the best maintained and most significant Baroque gardens in Europe, and should be on the list of sights to see of every visitor to Hanover.

    • Marktkirche

      Brick Gothic
      The Market Church in Hanover’s Old Town is the oldest of the city’s three parish churches. Built in the 14th century, it is considered a masterpiece of North German brick Gothic. However, at the time the building costs became too expensive for the city, and it suddenly cut off the funding. That is why it has a shorter steeple – although it transpired that people like it so much that it was copied many times over. Incidentally, the German Michel is buried in the Market Church. He in fact led the German-Danish army in the Thirty Years War, and was mortally wounded. Next to the New Town Hall, this is another landmark of the city.
