Smart & sustainable

This guide presents sustainable, regional, fair-trade and alternative products and services on offer in the various neighbourhoods of our green city.

Brücke in Herrenhausen

Just as varied as these neighbourhoods are the boutiques, restaurants, cafés and projects you can read about here. You can be sustainable while on the go with Hannover’s Hannoccino reusable coffee cup as you navigate the city’s attractions along the Red Thread. Along the way, you might visit the Eilenriede forest, which is bigger than New York’s Central Park. Or maybe you’ll pass the “Three Warm Brothers” on your way to Linden for a delicious organic ice cream, then walk through the Herrenhausen Gardens to the student area of Nordstadt for a taste of regional produce before discovering the charming neighbourhood of List. Whether you want to shop sustainably in small boutiques, find inspiration in second-hand fashion shops or find something you love at Germany’s oldest flea market by the banks of the Leine – this guide has you covered. Hannover is also known for its art and museums, together with a diverse and intriguing theatre scene and many special events all year round. And of course you’ll also find plenty of tips in relation to mobility. Bus and rail not only provide fast and eco-friendly transportation around the city, they can also take you to green destinations such as Steinhuder Meer and the Deister hills in next to no time – and you can even take your bike with you!
