The first stop is usually Kropcke, a large downtown pedestrian shopping area that is also home to the opera house and multiple historical museums. Hanover is a very modern city with ample dining, shopping and, in typical German fashion, drinking options like Brauhaus Ernst August.

Amazing place in the center of northern Germany. Definitely worth to visit is the "Maschseefest" - a 4 week big party around the lake of Hannover. Taking place in the month of August.

The city seems to have everything a tourist magnet should have. It even created a red thread route to facilitate tourists in their walking trip. However, something's lacking. Charm, maybe?
