Mitte: the historic city center

If you’re looking for accommodation in Hanover, there’s no better place to stay than in the Mitte: the city center. This is the best district for accessing the city’s tourist and historical attractions, such as the famous Marktkirche or the Town Hall. Mitte is also home to numerous museums, such as the Historical Museum, which traces the city’s history from the Middle Ages to the present day.

For lunch, dinner or partying, the Mitte district is also perfect: you’ll find plenty of restaurants and bars to enjoy after dark!

When it comes to housing in Hanover’s Mitte district, there’s no need to worry. This is the most attractive district, with an abundant and sometimes even inexpensive supply of accommodation.

Oststadt: the place to stay in Hanover

The Oststadt district is just behind the main railway station. It’s a great place to stay in Hanover. You’re close to the city center, which makes sightseeing easier, and close to the main train station. This means you don’t have to carry your luggage back and forth through the Old Town – if you’re coming by train, or if Hanover is just a stopover on a long trip through northern Germany.

This district is also adjacent to Eilenriede Park: a veritable forest in the city, nicknamed the « green heart of Hanover ». It’s the perfect place to stroll and relax after a long visit to the Old Town.


For accommodation in Hanover, Linden-Nord is also a good option. This district has a more authentic atmosphere, away from the hustle and bustle of the Old Town. For your accommodation in Hanover, we recommend the area between Linden-Nord and Parc Von Alten. You can also easily reach the historic center by public transport.

The district is especially popular for its nightlife, with excellent, friendly bars such as Lindwurm and Bar Añejo. Linden-Nord also boasts a number of small, friendly restaurants to discover during your visit to Hanover!


If you’re coming to the beautiful German city to attend one of the many trade fairs taking place at the Exhibition Center, Döhren-Wülfel is the perfect place to stay in Hanover. From your accommodation, you’ll have easy access to the Exhibition Center on foot, without having to use public transport.

For visits to the Old Town, however, allow 20 minutes by public transport.
