Art and culture in Hanover
Longing for a little music to restore your equilibrium after a day full of stimulating, perhaps even inspirational, conversations at a trade fair? Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that Hanover has held the title of ‘UNESCO City of Music’ since 2014. This city is shaped by a unique, diverse music scene, buzzing with a wide range of musical groups and genres: from pop and rock to contemporary sounds and melodies. Who knows, perhaps you’ll fancy dropping by Jazz Club Hannover at the end of the day?
One thing’s for sure: if you’re planning to book our affordable design hotel for a (musical) city break or as part of a cultural event, rest assured you'll find everything you need for an all-round awesome stay. There are numerous cultural and sightseeing attractions right on our doorstep: Staatsoper Hannover, the city’s opera house, and Opernplatz right in front of it; the Kröpcke clock; the Leibnizhaus, a reconstructed 15th-century townhouse; the Schauspielhaus (theatre); and the old and new town halls. Measuring 97 metres tall and 130 metres wide, the new town hall is one of Hanover’s key landmarks and took 12 years to build. If you’re interested in architecture, you should also pay a visit to Leibniz University Hannover: the Welfenschloss, the main university building, was built in the 19th century, at the time of the Kingdom of Hanover under George V, and was used by the royal family as a summer residence.
The green side of Hanover
Just as Hanover in summertime once enticed royalty to visit, the city continues to captivate visitors today with its green spaces. And in our design hotel, the stylish setting will make you feel at least as elegant as those high-born nobles – surrounded by art and exquisite interiors, and not far at all from the city’s little oases of calm. The many parks, Eilenriede City Park, Hanover’s Herrenhausen Gardens – wherever you go, you’ll be greeted by the city’s green spaces, where you can walk, relax and marvel at your surroundings. The Maschsee lake is also easy to reach from our design hotel. Once there, you can swim, sail, hire a pedalo – or stay on dry land and walk, jog or cycle along the six-kilometre lakeside trail.
If you have a little more time at your disposal and fancy some time out by the sea or in the great outdoors, you can head towards the North Sea, to the beach or – in the opposite direction – towards the Harz region. So, don’t forget to pack your hiking boots and a swimming costume!
Whatever you have planned for your trip to the capital of Lower Saxony, at our design hotel, you can expect a warm welcome in a prime location, with superb transport links that’ll take you to all the city’s most beautiful and historic spots in no time at all.
