Short break Hannover: On a rendezvous with the state capital

Many people know Hanover as a world trade fair city, but few know that the city can also score points as a destination for a short holiday in Hanover. Hanover with its picturesque old town centre is simply worth seeing, as is the beautiful Maschsee lake, but the numerous events, such as the Maschsee festival or the fireworks competition, are also part of the permanent repertoire of this lively city. To relax, a visit to the beautiful "Royal Gardens" of Herrenhausen is unmissable.

Not far from the hustle and bustle of Hanover, a day trip offers you the opportunity to completely switch off for once in the rugged heights and rocky regions of the Harz Mountains. Lured by the clear air of the forest as well as the unspoilt mountain landscape, you can enjoy pure nature and recharge your batteries on the hiking trails of the Harz National Park. This is also a short holiday in Hanover.
