HANNOVER – CAPITAL OF LOWER SAXONY



Han(n)over is the capital and the largest city of Lower Saxony, a federal state in Northern Germany. With a population of 520,000 (1,1 million in the metropolitan area) it is the 11th largest city in Germany.

This thread is supposed to show you as many different sides of Hannover as possible. Don't expect a selection of photographic masterpieces.
Feel free to post pictures - but only if you took them yourself! Please try to avoid posts with more than three pictures. Some comments or explanations on what's shown in your photos would be nice as well.

Let’s start in Mitte:

01 - The Raschplatzhochstraße, a flyover running just behind the central station, with the old TV tower Telemoritz (141 metres) and the Bredero Hochhaus (91 metres), Hannover’s second tallest highrise, in the background.


02 - Another view with the Stadtsparkasse (70 metres) on the left.

06 - The Gehry Tower, standing in close vicinity to the red light district at the Steintor.


07 - The media centre of Madsack, a Hanoverian publishing company, designed by Alessandro Mendini.


08 - The Allianz-Hochhaus (68 metres) in the foreground and the Conti-Hochhaus (66 metres), a former administrative building of Continental, now being used by the University of Hannover, in the background. The silvery art thing on the left is part of the Skulpturenmeile, a permanent exposition along the Leibnizufer.


To be continued ...

Nice. Sad but true, most of those pictures include lots of traffic. Especially the Rathaus and similar older buildings appear somehow foreign with sixlane-streets in front of them.

Very nice wintry pictures of Hannover! I'm interested by the glass elevators labelled 'Waterloo' in one of the early pictures.

Nice! This is my City of birth.
I visited some family members a month ago. There was not much time to take lots of pictures. I only made a handfull.
I like the area around the Zoo. I would love to have a (second) house (home) there. Because my home base is Rotterdam.

Here the few pictures I took. I also made some pictures in neighboorhood villages (Abbensen/Wedemark)

1. De Maschsee with the AWD Arena of Hannover 96.

Looks almost Italian to me. Hannover, Italy's northernmost city?
