Hannover is an atypical European city. No need to search here for centuries-old buildings. Hanover suffered a lot during World War II, so only a few quarters of the 19th century remain. Otherwise, even the Old Town district can be considered “new”, built only 40 years ago. But the largest exhibitions of anything are held here and in general there is always something to entertain yourself with.

Hannover-Langenhagen Airport, HAJ

Hannover Airport is located in the German state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), north of Hannover. Everything is as in classical Germany: very clean, as clear as possible navigation, fairly fast and high-quality service. Many local restaurants are open around the clock, so you can even spend the night at the airport. Long queues and delays do not often happen here, but you can still count on the fact that all customs controls will take about an hour.

Hannover-Langenhagen Airport is the second in Germany by the number of flights to Eastern Europe. Hannover can be an ideal hub for a transfer between the start and end points of the trip for many travelers from this region. Firstly, there are many flights to Spanish resorts. Secondly, in Hannover itself, you can spend several days with pleasure. And from the airport it is easy to get to the center and back. More on that later...

How to get from the airport to the city center?

Langenhagen Airport is connected to the city by a comfortable and fast high-speed rail line. The airport train station (S-Bahnhof) is located under one of the three terminals.

 

S-Bahn S5 is the fastest way to get between the airport and the city. Travel time is only 18 minutes. At the same time, trains leave every 30 minutes from 04:00 to 01:30, that is, almost all day. On the way to Hannover Main Station, the S-Bahn stops at some intermediate stations. So explore the route if you want to go closer to your hotel. A ticket for $ 4 can be bought in a vending machine at the station.

A taxi ride to the center of Hannover takes about 20 minutes and costs about $ 28 in the afternoon and up to two times more expensive at night. But it is worth noting that there is no point in using a taxi. The railway is cheaper and faster, and no less comfortable.

Hannover Sightseeings

Ask any person what German cities he knows. Most likely, well-known names like Berlin, Munich or Cologne will sound in response. At the same time, almost no one will remember Hannover. Perhaps this is one of the most underrated cities in Germany. A hidden gem that is rapidly gaining popularity, but is still not crowded with tourists. At the same time, there are a huge number of fascinating activities that will help make the weekend of the traveler amazing.

Herrenhausen Gardens

These royal gardens are Hannover's most famous landmark. There are four unique gardens at once: the Great Garden, Berggarten, Georgengarten, Welfengarten. The Great garden is the main venue for festivals, concerts, theater performances. Something exciting is constantly happening in the garden. On the other hand is Berggarten, which recently turned 300 years old. Georgengarten has a museum of caricatures and graphics. And at Welfengarten you can visit the University of Hannover with its beautiful architecture.

New Town Hall

No need to deeply understand architecture to appreciate the magnificence of the New Town Hall of Hannover. This amazing palace building looks luxurious in itself. But even better is the view of the city from its observation deck at an altitude of almost 100 meters. In addition, there is a unique parabolic elevator that takes tourists to the top. An absolute must-see in Hannover.

State Museum of Lower Saxony

Just opposite the New Town Hall is the State Museum of Lower Saxony. This building from the outside is as magnificent as the collection that is presented in it. Here are collected works of art of the 11th-20th centuries, exhibits of natural history, including a life-size dinosaur skeleton. The archaeological department consists of artifacts of half a million history, as well as a variety of household items from around the world.

Aegidienkirche

Once this magnificent church was one of the central points of attraction for the inhabitants of Hannover. A bomb explosion severely damaged the building in 1943. Most of the historic church was in ruins. There were two options: to reconstruct or demolish the building. What did Hannover choose? Do nothing with the church. Now it serves the war memorial, the main purpose of which is to remind everyone of the terrible truth of the war.

Tiergarten

This giant green forest of 112 hectares was built in the 1600s. About 120 deer live here, as well as a huge number of rare birds and bats. It is an ideal place for a leisurely tourist walk and exploring the local nature. If you visit Hannover in October, you will be taken to a big local festival, which takes place in Tiergarten. In fact, this is a festival that is filled with a variety of activities for adults and children.

Shopping

If somewhere in Germany there are the best shopping areas, then all of them are precisely collected in one Hannover. Every Saturday, a flea market is organized in the city, where you can find the most amazing souvenirs. Market Hall sells the freshest products. In local galleries and passages you can find souvenirs more status and expensive. Hannover has entire neighborhoods with exclusive boutiques and shops. And at every corner they sell something tasty, so you definitely won’t stay hungry. But more on that later.
