Meet Hannover’s ‘largest island’: Calenberger Neustadt. At the confluence of the rivers Ihme and Leine, students ‘chillax’ in hip beach clubs or on verdant embankments. A mere stone’s throw away from the historical city centre, the Calenberger Straße with its enticing shops, restaurants and snack bars is ideal for a relaxed stroll. A bedrock of Hannover’s cultural life is the Leibniz Theatre in the Kommandantur Straße.
To the south, the Marksmen’s festival, the October festival and the Spring festival, as well as great sports and event locations, such as the HDI Arena, Swiss Life Hall and the Gilde Parkbühne (park stage) guarantee great fun and excitement.
