2. The best place to catch a taxi is at a special parking lot. You can also order a taxi by phone. Catching a car on the road is rather hard. Despite the fact that all taxis are equipped with meters, it is better to negotiate the price of a ride in advance.
3. The most favorable time to arrive in Hannover is between May and October. At this time of year the city is distinguished by the most favorable weather, so nothing will break your recreation program.
4. Savvy travelers are recommended to visit eating facilities located near Raschplatz Square. Numerous bistros and cafes located there offer a rich choice of dishes at very attractive prices. There are also several low-cost restaurants in the territory of Markthalle market.
5. Georgstrasse is the best place to find memorable souvenirs. It is famous not only for its souvenir shops, but also for its antique shops. Bargaining is not common here and is unlikely to bring you a big discount on goods. However, if a seller feels sympathy for a buyer, he may make a gift in addition to a purchase.
