Hannover is situated in the centre of Germany along the river Leine. Today, this city of approximately 515,000 inhabitants is most famous for hosting some of the largest international trade fairs and expositions.
Hannover has a mild climate with frequent rainfall. Summer is the best time to visit; the temperatures in July and August are the highest with an average of 25°C. The temperature tends to hover around 5°C during most of the winter season.
Hannover had humble beginnings as a fishing village, but it soon transformed into a thriving medieval city. The city prospered first under the French and later, under the British rule. The city’s growth was rapid until it became another casualty of World War II; more than two-thirds of the city was destroyed.
