Art to Go
For our hotel rooms Sebastian Peetz has created layouts of the former newspaper printed in the historic Kurierhaus with photographs of the sky above Hanover. You can also find more information about his art in your room as a flyer to take home - or download it here.
Hanover has green fingers. An impressive 10 percent of the city’s surface area belongs to mother nature, so it has definitely earned its nickname ‘the green city’. You can experience nature in its purest form in the urban forest. Just a stone’s throw from the centre of town, old half-timbered buildings make way for the largest city park in Europe, which consists of 6.4 square kilometres of forest. Or how about a touch of Versailles? You could easily mistake the Great Garden for the famous Parisian park. The Baroque fountains, mazes and open-air theatres have been popular places to rest and rejuvenate for over 300 years. But Hanover’s little garden is also a great place for a stroll. What other German metropolis can boast over 20,000 allotments? You could easily forget that you’re in Germany’s 13th largest city.
