Top Places to Visit in Hanover

How we Rank Top Places to Visit in Hanover.

1. Herrenhäuser Gärten

Proof that Hanover is not all buttoned-down business is the grandiose baroque Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen, about 5km north of the city center, which are considered one of the most important historic garden landscapes in Europe.

2. Sprengel Museum

The Sprengel Museum is held in extremely high esteem, both for the design of the building as well as for the art housed inside.

3. Neues Rathaus

An excellent way to get your bearings in Hanover is to visit the Neues Rathaus (built 1901–13) and travel 98m to the top in the curved lift (the only one of its kind) inside its green dome.

4. Pier 51

Romantic at sundown, Pier 51 is walled with glass and juts out over the Maschsee. Expect light pasta dishes and a small selection of fish, poultry and red meats on a changing menu.

5. Basil

These former stables to the north of town now house a hip fusion restaurant, with a high arched ceiling, pressed tablecloths and memorable creative cuisine. Dress to be seen.
