City of Fairs
Hannover, northern Germany's major urban center, may be best known for hosting annual commercial trade fairs. However, its yearly beer festival--one of the largest such events in the world--is the city's biggest tourist attraction. The globally important city is a major crossing point of European railway lines and highways. It's also home to an international airport, a large zoo, and renowned universities. Hannover is not a typical European city--at least when it comes to old architecture. Massively damaged during World War II, Hannover now contains only a few historical attractions. Even the old city center is mostly new, dotted with medieval-style buildings that were erected only after the war. The city does feature sprawling forests, lavish gardens, and huge public parks, so it doesn't lack in things to do while in town. Be sure to explore the large pedestrian area in the heart of Hannover, a major shopping and dining spot. Hannover is in Lower Saxony.
