Hannover’s numerous popular festivities and music events prove to be enormous draws year after year. Rock and pop fans flock to the city for concerts in the TUI Arena and AWD Arena, and on the Parkbühne stage. At the biggest Marksmen’s Fair in the world, hundreds of thousands have a wonderful time on the rides, in the marquees and joining in with the Marksmen’s Parade through the city centre. And the Maschsee Lake Festival, with its unique maritime atmosphere on the fringes of central Hannover, is another of northern Germany’s most successful events of this kind.The summertime ‘Fête de la Musique’, held at 40 locations throughout the city centre, is a fantastic live-music festival. Lovers of speciality music enjoy the annual MASALA Festival and the A Cappella Week. Fans of open-air entertainment cheer on the performers at the BootBooHook event, the NDR Plaza Festival and in front of the Parkbühne stage. And, on Ascension Day, the city becomes a metropolis of jazz when the fans celebrate ‘enercity Swinging Hannover’ outside the New Town Hall.
The famous Herrenhausen Gardens form a magnificent backdrop for high-calibre cultural events. In the summer, they become a splendid setting for the Herrenhausen Arts Festival. The world’s best pyrotechnists dazzle the crowds at the International Fireworks Competition. At the ‘Little Festival in the Great Garden’ dancers, mime artists and musicians turn the gardens with all their nooks and crannies into an enormous open-air stage. And, at cooler times of the year, the programme includes classical-music concerts and the Winter Variety show.
A tremendous attraction for the whole family is Hannover Adventure Zoo, with over 3,000 animals in seven fascinating ‘theme worlds’ and thrilling shows.
