Cheap flights to Hanover

Tourists often overlook Hanover but those who do take the time to get to know the city’s charms are rarely disappointed. Buried beneath its identity as a modern hub for global technology exhibitions, lies a history steeped in regal elegance as the home to the ruling family from The House of Hanover. Although the heart of its rich architectural heritage was largely destroyed by allied bombing during the Second World War, parts of the city have been painstakingly restored.

The Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen is hands down the most famous landmark in the city and is often likened to France’s gardens of Versailles. The swathes of green are made up of four gardens; the beatifically manicured Great Garden is the podium for festivals, events and concerts and has a grotto dedicated to the last works of artist Niki de Saint Phalle. There is also the baroque Berggarten, Georgengarten – which is home to Wilhelm Busch German Museum for Caricature and Critical Graphic Arts and the Leibniz Temple – and the Welfengarten. For those who wish to brave the elements, the popular swimming beach Strandbad is top of travellers lists on the southeast bank of the Maschsee, Hanover’s large lake.

Another must-do in Hanover is Aegidienkirche . Its magnificence was once a source of pride for the city but a devastating bomb raid during the Second World War destroyed much of the church and left it in ruins. It was never reconstructed and has been preserved as a war memorial to remind locals and tourists that in the middle of beauty exists the ugly truth of war.
