10 things you have to do in Hanover

Hanover is known as "the trade fair city". Business travel, EXPO 2000 ... But there is much more to it than that. Did you know that Hanover is one of the greenest cities in Germany? The Eilenriede is the approximately 640 hectare urban forest and stretches from east to north.  

We want to prove that Hanover is anything but boring, so we thought about some insight tips. In addition, we would like to maintain a bit of tradition and describe things that you should do in Hanover.
