If you want to immerse yourself in the city life of Hanover outside of the trade fair, the city has a number of highlights in store for you. One of the culinary highlights is definitely the cult drink “Lüttje Lage” – a small beer glass with dark beer and a miniature schnapps goblet with Korn. Brave drinkers can also be shown the special technique for drinking “Lüttje Lage”.

Among the leisure activities, the elevator to the dome of the New Town Hall is very popular. At a height of 94 metres, sightseers can enjoy a unique panoramic view. The famous sloping lift runs at a 17° incline and is therefore a guarantee for an extraordinary experience. Linden, on the other hand, provides the perfect nightlife atmosphere – Hanover’s craziest district, perfect for a pub crawl after a day at the trade fair.

Would you like to have a drink after a day at the trade fair? In Hanover, laid back lounges, rustic pubs and bars with a high-class atmosphere can help you pass the time.
And the eateries of the big city also offer some culinary delights. Please contact us for tips and seat reservations:
While Giovanni-R on Hildesheimer Straße in Laatzen is the best place to go for pizza and pasta after the trade fair, the Funky Kitchen on the Expo site not only attracts with international delicacies, but also with good music. At Helenenstraße 37, fans of spicy cuisine will find the Indian restaurant RAJ. But if it is authentic Greek cuisine you crave and not Indian food, we can recommend Kytaro restaurant.

The Hanover Exhibition Centre is conveniently located for arrival and departure by all means of transport. Hanover is well networked regionally as well as throughout Germany and Europe.
