Hannover: Private Guided Walking Tour

3. Hannover: Private Guided Walking Tour

When you imagine Hannover, you think of CeBit Computer Expo or the Hannover Messe Industrial Technology Trade Fair? Prepare to be taken by surprise! Hannover, it's not only about the largest fairground in the world and hi-tech exhibitions, but it's also a city with a rich history, a city that gave the world a monarchy that ruled Great Britain, a city with a wealth of museums and cultural sites and with Europe's largest urban forest, the Eilenriede. The first contact with this city might not blow you away but give it some time and it will be hard to ever part. See the Market Church, the main Lutheran church in Hanover. Built-in the 14th century, it's considered to be one of the most well-known examples of the North German brick gothic architectural style. Learn all about the Oskar-Winter- Fountain, a local fountain with a fascinating story. The legend says that if you make a wish and turn the small brass ring embedded in the ironwork, it will come true. Behind the fountain, you can see the Leibniz House, the place where the mathematician and philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) used to live. Pass the Aegidien Church, a reminder of the horrors of war. Destroyed during WWII, it was never repaired or reconstructed. Inside the ruins, you can see the Peace Bell, donated by the city of Hiroshima. Annually, on the 6th of August at 08:15, a delegation from Hiroshima comes to ring the bell, in memory of those that died during the air strike. The New Town Hall also has an interesting story: when it was opened by Emperor Wilhelm II, the City Director announced: "Ten million Marks, Your Majesty – and all paid for in cash". Hannover is certainly a place of stories to learn and fall in love with.
