"I had been warned in advance. - By the Germans themselves."
These are the first words of his blog article at BudgetTraveller. For 6 years, he has been travelling in style on a budget and challenging people to think differently about budget travel. He has been told: “Hannover is a very dull city! Why would you want to visit Hannover?”
So he wants to find out whether its dull reputation was ill-deserved or not. And visiting the city with bad expectations he is really surprised afterwards.
"Hanover was far from dull. You just need to dig deep to see its true self."
His conclusion: "I visited museums with some of the best collections of modern art in the world, walked around the beautiful baroque gardens of Herrenhausen, hanged out in some cool neighbourhoods like the Linden district with it’s hip bars and cafes. Then you have the unexpected charm and beauty of Hannover’s Altstadt which contrasts with the modernity of the city. Hanover, I must conclude was far from dull."
