Fly to Hanover from the UK with British Airways and discover a former royal capital that few international tourists get to see. Hanover’s mix of old royal residences, high culture and traditional festivals make it an equally good place to trace Germany’s history, to visit the opera or to down copper-coloured local Bock beer to the sound of German folk music.
Flights to Hanover are also an ideal way to access many of Lower Saxony’s undiscovered corners. The picturesque medieval towns of Hildesheim and Hamelin (of Pied Piper fame) are under 30 minutes away to Hanover’s south, while just to the north are the huge, eerie spaces of the Luneburg Heath, Germany’s first national park.
