Now rebuilt and revitalised
21st century Hanover is only a little like its historic ancestor, with the exception of the painstakingly restored Altstadt. Instead, it’s where the commercial world comes to meet in lush green surroundings, as the self-styled Expo City goes about its business. In keeping with a town full of business people, there’s plenty to see and do, on a social, cultural and retail-therapeutic level!

From the end of Spring to late autumn, the local must-see attraction is the fabulously baroque Great Garden of Herrenhausen, designed some 300 years ago as a rival to those at Versailles.
Must eat at:
Das Klein Museum (the Little Museum) on Grotestrasse, lives up to its reputation with a mix of local, French and North African cuisine, and the rather distracting sight of stuffed and suspended crocodiles and other antiquities. Don’t let it put you off your dinner.
Must be there for:
March brings the famous CeBIT to Hanover’s EXPO arena. As one of the world’s most prominent technology fairs, it attracts gadget lovers, geeks and professional technologists from across the globe.
· If you’re travelling with children at Christmas, be sure to pay a visit to Hanover Zoo which transforms itself into a seasonal wonderland of ice shows, slides, skating over the whole festive season.
· There’s an interesting flea market in town every Saturday from 7am, along the banks of the Liene river.
