Cultural life in Hannover is colorful, lively, diverse and receives international attention and recognition. Nearly 40 theaters, 24 large and small museums, numerous festivals and cabarets, the world’s largest shooting festival and many other events woo the public’s art.
In 2015, UNESCO awarded Hannover the title of “City of Music”. This honorable distinction places the state capital among 18 other international cities.
The baroque garden complex “Herrenhäuser Gärten” invites you to stay at any time of the year. In the summer, an international fireworks competition is held here every year, and many people from all over the world come to Hannover.
The city center and the picturesque old town with its half-timbered houses are a great place to stroll, and shopping is fun for Hanoverians and guests alike in countless boutiques, department stores and specialty stores.
