Ancient settlers on the city's river originally called their town 'Hohen Overe,' (high bank) which became Honovere and finally Hannover, the capital of the Niedersachsen region of Germany. Although a lot of the medieval city was destroyed in World War II, kids can run around the spectacular gardens and parks in Hannover.

Fun food
Market Hall - Go here to find an incredible range of both local favorites and international treats.
Desserts - Germans love desserts and make some famous ones, but try a few that may be less familiar: Rote Grütze mit Sahne oder Vanillesosse  is a wonderful fruit compote with cream, then there's the Lübecker marzipan, and the Baumkuchen ("tree cake") made with layers to mimic the rings of a tree.
