Introduction

When many think of Hannover, royals of the Hannoverian dynasty such as George III and Queen Victoria spring to mind. The Herrenhausen, once the monarchs’ lavish summer residence, was destroyed in World War II but has been faithfully rebuilt, complete with the ornamental gardens. Aside from that Hannover is known as a city of technology and business, and hosts large annual trade shows like computer expo CeBit.


The old town has timber-framed buildings, museums and quaint alleyways, while the city centre is where most of the shops, restaurants and bars are. One of the easiest ways to make sure you don’t miss any of the sights is by following the “red thread”, a red line painted on the pavement that connects 36 different attractions.
