Hanover (Hannover in German) represents one of Germany's hubs of industry, transportation and commerce.
However, the capital of the federal state of Lower Saxony, is also an important tourist drawcard luring visitors with its mix of history and culture.
Hanover attracts millions of tourists annually. A large chunk of those travel to the city in September when Hanover's streets overflow with tourists attending the The Schuetzenfest the world's largest Marksmen's Fun Fair and Oktoberfest Hannover which rivals only Munich's in terms of scale and volume of beer swilled.
