The Location

Halle 96 is in the southern part of Hannover’s Linden district on the former Hanomag site, the largest industrial monument in Hannover. The Hanomaghof, where the centre for creatives is located, was established between Göttinger Straße and Hanomagstraße when the site was restructured.

Access is via Elfriede-Paul-Allee or Hanomagstraße. The A2 Autobahn is 15 minutes away via the B6. The journey time by public transport is only around seven minutes from the central station.
