How to get to Hannover

Perfectly networked: Its central location in the heart of the European transport network is one of numerous trump cards that the region of Hannover has in its hand.

The A2 (running east-west) and A7 (running north-south) motorways are amongst the most important road connections in Central Europe. The majority of cities in Lower Saxony are connected to the ICE train network of Deutsche Bahn, which provides direct links to all German conurbation areas.

Central arrival & departure point for those travelling by plane is Han­no­ver Airport (HAJ) just outside the gates of the state capital. There are direct flights to more than 100 destinations. Its Interkont parallel runway system for 60 flight movements per hour provides 24-hour operations and an unre­stric­ted infrastructure, giving airlines easy access to this enormous market.

The Mittelland Canal, the longest man-made waterway in Germany, connects Hannover with the major seaports and inland ports on the Continent.

GVH (transport association for Greater Hannover Area) carries around 190 mio. passengers on its public transport services every year. These services offer maximum comfort & convenience: in 2010, Hannover was awarded 1st place in the Local Public Transport category in a nationwide survey.
