The city of Hanover is a major centre in Northern Germany with lots on offer for tourists. Every year it hosts the Schützenfest Hanover, which is the world's largest marksman's festival, or you can time your travels to coincide with the Oktoberfest Hanover. The world fair Expo 2000 was held in Hanover and as a result the Hanover trade fair grounds are now the largest in the world. The Hanover Zoo is considered to be one of the best and most-spectacular zoos of Europe and should be on the top of your to-do list. Museums, theatre, music, sport: you name it, Hanover has it!
