Hannover calls itself "Messestadt" (Exhibition City). That's why upon arrival of the train at the main station you hear the words "Welcome to the Exhibition City Hannover." This is true - the city was completely destroyed during the war and has no large historical attractions.

Hannover is best known because of CEBIT, world's largest annual exhibition dedicated to information and communication technologies. In 2000, world's largest exhibition EXPO 2000 was held in Hannover. It was a grand failure due to improper planning and brought losses of 1.2 billion euros. However, the city's giant exhibition center still hosts various weekly events and exhibitions.

Despite the fact that Hannover is not a tourist center, it has such feature as the "red line." It's painted right on the pavement and starts from the tourist information office near the train station. The 4,200-meter long route passes architectural, historical and entertainment attractions. In the tourist center you can take a small "red line" guide in English.

City Hall is the symbol of the city. It is really beautiful and one of the best in Germany. Be sure to go inside. In the lobby 4 models show Hannover in 1689, 1939, 1945 and 2000. You can also go up to the observation deck in an inclined elevator at an angle of 45 degrees.

Hannover is perfect as a place of accommodation  if you want to travel throughout Lower Saxony. You can get by train to all parts of the region in 4 hours.

There is no old city in Hannover. Nothing was left after the war. Old half-timbered houses from the entire city were gathered and put in one place. You will find them on the Burgshtrasse and Kramershtrasse streets.

The red line route goes on, but be sure to go around the City Hall and take a look at the beautiful Maschpark. The City Hall looks a lot better from the park. And by moving a little further you will go to the city lake Maschsee and AWD Arena stadium. The lake was artificially created in 1934-35. Around the lake is the city's most popular running track, which is 6.2 km long.
