Hanover’s old town – your new neighbourhood
Lower Saxony’s state capital is large – but the „Altstadt“ is its own small and popular area. Surrounded by picturesque buildings, squares and churches, it invites visitors and residents to become a part of it- right in the heart of the city of Hannover.
Popular residential area with history
The „Altstadt“ of Hannover is unique. Only about 40 houses in the entire quarter were spared from the destruction of the Second World War. The residential buildings that can be seen today were either rebuilt after the war or moved here as complete houses – mostly half-timbered houses – from surrounding districts. In between are beautifully landscaped squares such as Ballhofplatz or Hanns-Lilje-Platz, surrounded by the banks of the river Leine and the oldest church in the city – the Kreuzkirche.
With popular shopping and walking streets, varied interesting gastronomic concepts and a very good infrastructural connection, „Altstadt“ is one of the most popular residential areas in all of Hannover.
Culture, Music & Retreat
Salsa and tango nights, international theater performances and jazz festivals: culture and music can be experienced in harmony in the “Altstadt“.
Distinctive historic buildings, such as the Marktkirche, the Old Town Hall or the Ballhof, create an unmistakable close residential feeling here.
Despite the wide range of offers, there is still time for quiet and contemplation behind the historic facades. Thus, many bedrooms face the quiet backyards. New residential areas have been created – for example, the „Kreuzkirchhofviertel“ – where it is possible to live in purposeful seclusion and tranquility.
Thanks to a large parking garage and various private and public parking spaces, the „Altstadt“ also offers good parking possibilities despite its inner-city location.
