Situated on the River Leine, Hanover is the largest city in the German state of Lower Saxony. This historic city is now an important commercial centre and home to a large university, the Leibniz University Hanover.

Aside from industry, Hanover is known for being a hub for festivals in Germany. The city is always celebrating something, but two of the biggest events are the hugely popular Oktoberfest Hanover and the Hanover Schutzenfest, a target shooting competition.

Even if you skip the revelry at these festivals, Hanover offers a rich cultural experience in its world-class museums, theatres, and galleries. One of Hanover's cultural centrepieces is the Hanover Opera House. Built in 1852, this impressive building hosts opera performances during opera season, from September to June.

Like most of Germany, Hanover is extremely accessible thanks to robust transport options. Hanover Airport is served by many major airlines, while the train station has many connections from various destinations across the country. Plus, intercity coach service on BlaBlaCar Bus, Sindbad, FlixBus, and more connects Hanover to other German cities, including Dresden, Cologne, Hamburg, and more.

Hamburg might be often overshadowed by Berlin or Munich, but it certainly is one of Germany’s best hidden gems. A vibrant harbor city with plenty of activities, Hamburg will keep you interested through days and nights. Among the city’s most famous attractions is the Elbphilharmonie, a stunning concert hall that could rival the famous Sydney Opera House. The concert hall also features a public viewing platform that offers a panoramic view of the city and the harbor, a great bonus for visitors who enjoy taking pictures. If you travel with kids, it is a great idea to take them to the Miniatur Wunderland, which many consider to be the largest model railway in the world. If you simply want to take a walk around and enjoy the vibe of the city, Planten und Blomen, nicknamed “the green lungs of the city”, will provide the reprieve you need.

Hamburg’s proximity to the sea allows it to offer the freshest and finest seafood dishes around. Fischereihafen Restaurant is a local favorite that has garnered plenty of attention. For the best beers around, Braugasthaus Altes Mädchen is a popular spot that is worth your attention.

The main bus station in the city is called ZOB Hamburg and it’s located at Adenauerallee 78 in the city center, serving FlixBus and Sindbad, among other carriers. Hamburg Hauptbahnhof is the main railway station in the city. For international air services, Hamburg Airport, the oldest in Germany, is the main airport.
