October 2018: Hanover

Hanover (German: Hannover, pronounced han-OH-fer) is the capital of the German federal state of Lower Saxony (German: Niedersachsen). With a population in excess of half a million, it is also the federal state's largest settlement. The city is well known for hosting large conferences, trade fairs and exhibitions. Hanover suffered catastrophic damage during World War II, and it is wise to remember that many of today's 'historic' sights have been restored or even rebuilt. While bearing this advice in mind, I was still pleased to find the city much more attractive than anticipated.

Although we didn't have a lot of time at this destination, the second day being used for a trip out of town, I enjoyed the short visit. Our explorations were concentrated in the area running northwest from the New Town Hall, on both banks of the Leine river.
