Hannover has never been one of Germany’s most visited destinations, but packs an impressive amount of culture, art, and natural beauty into a city of only half a million people. Hannover is a great size for those who love to take off on foot in order to freely wander the city, and it’s quite easy to see the sights thanks to the Red Thread. This is literally a red line that takes followers through Hannover and past some of its best sights like the State Opera, the Ernst-Grote House, New Town Hall, and the Aegidienkirche. The Red Thread can give you an intimate look at Hannover, and the guide only costs €3 at the tourist information center.

Art lovers should make time for a trip to the Sprengel Museum, one of the finest contemporary art museums in Germany. To take in a bit of the natural beauty to be found in Hannover, make your way to the baroque Herrenhausen Gardens. A short stroll through these lush, whimsical gardens are enough to make anyone feel like royalty.
