Furnished living in Hanover: information for newcomers
From the Kingdom of Hanover to the greenest state capital in Germany
Hanover is considered to be one of the greenest state capitals. In addition to the Maschsee and the Eilenriede, there are other small city parks that invite you to take a nice walk or jog in both summer and winter. The Eilenriede was named Europe's most important urban forest.
The state capital has approx. 550 thousand inhabitants and is almost as big as the entire Saarland (with the Hanover region approx. 1,1 million inhabitants). It extends from the north German lowlands to the foothills of the Weser Uplands, the Deister (Hanover region).
The former kingdom is now more modern than ever. Thanks to the Expo 2000, the city's infrastructure was completely renewed. The transport connections to the largest motorways, A2, A7, as well as to various federal highways such as the B65, B3 and B6 make Hanover a hub between northern and southern Germany, as well as between eastern and western Europe. Public transport is also very well structured and the coverage of the entire Hanover area is already serving as a model for other large cities. The trams run within the city center every 5-10 minutes (each direction), the S-Bahn trains to the region run every 30 minutes. Long-distance traffic is also very well represented at Hanover Central Station.
Hanover is one of the largest business locations in Germany. Well-known companies such as Volkswagen, Continental, Johnsons Controls, Wabco, TUI and many more have chosen their headquarters here. In addition, Hanover is one of the leading trade fair locations in Europe and the Hanover exhibition center is the largest in the world.
Culture and leisure
Hanover has a very old culture and can partly be traced back to the Middle Ages. Here the former kingdom becomes visible. The Herrenhausen Gardens are now open to visitors and invite you to take a stately walk. There are also many cultural events such as the little festival in the big garden and the annual fireworks competition. The popular old town offers the beautiful market church and the historic half-timbered buildings. Here you feel transported back in the 19th century.
Hanover offers something for every taste from the modern jazz club to the world-famous opera, which is the world's best training facility for make-up artists and actors. Various night clubs invite you to hot dance nights, the Schauspielhaus, the Theater am Aegi and the Ballhof offer a colorful program of the finest drama. There are also a lot of concerts with international stars in the TUI Arena.
In summer concerts and dance events take place even in the streets of the city center. For this reason, Hanover was named a UNESCO City of Music.
The special sights include the New Town Hall, the historic old town, Herrenhausen Palace and the Herrenhausen Gardens. The famous artist Nikki de Saint-Phalle donated the world-famous Nanas to Hanover and the Nikki de Saint Phalle Passage in Hanover's city center was built in her honor. A wonderful shopping arcade.
In the Hanover region there are also Marienburg Castle, the Steinhuder Meer, the hunting lodge in Springe and various monasteries and visitor mines. There is something for everyone.
