Book Flights to Hanover

Discover Hanover, the capital of Germany’s Lower Saxony region, where quaint half-timbered buildings and green open spaces sit perfectly alongside the city’s modern museums and galleries.

Fly from London to Hanover with British Airways for a culture fix in one of Germany’s most laid-back cities. Begin the day with a stroll around the Old Town to check out the city’s oldest church, Kreuzkirche, built in 1333. Then head over to the banks of the Leine River to see the palatial New Town Hall, the city’s most memorable landmark. While you’re there, take the lift to the building’s curved dome to soak up the views over the lake, parkland and city centre. Don’t miss nearby Maschsee Lake, lined with restaurants, a beach and a popular promenade that leads to the Sprengel Museum, which is home to an extensive modern art collection.

Why visit Hanover?

Hanover is a pleasant city to explore with a mix of Medieval buildings and contemporary architecture to admire. Street art and modern sculptures are dotted around the city adding character at every turn, but it’s the abundance of green space that really sets it apart.

Without leaving the city, you can discover a vast expanse of woodland that’s almost twice the size of New York’s Central Park. Eilenriede is Europe’s largest urban forest, where you relax, cycle and stroll under the shade of the mature alder and pine trees.

Once you’ve navigated the forest and the popular Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen, brush up on your history at the Lower Saxony State Museum. Housed in an imposing neo-Renaissance building, not only can you learn about Germany’s rich past here, but you can see works by Rembrandt and Rubens and discover its impressive archaeology, natural history and ethnology collections.
