Why Hannover is a great place to visit:
Hannover is a beautiful and verdant city located in the middle of Germany. With a population of over half a million, Hannover has it all: great shopping, museums, theaters, lush parks, and more.
Best time of year to visit:
Hannover is a wonderful place to visit all year-round. The summer is ideal because of the nice weather. Visitors traveling from abroad during this season will notice how green and beautiful the city is. The winter in Hannover is also great, as the city has Christmas markets that open in November. If you’re coming for the sole purpose of geocaching, the warmer months are recommended – April through September.
The Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen, a European Baroque garden, is one of the city’s most famous attractions.
Berggarten is also an important European botanical garden. Some points of interest in the garden are the Tropical House, the Cactus House, the Canary House and the Orchid House. The Orchid House hosts one of the world’s largest collections of orchids, free-flying birds, and butterflies.
Additionally, the Hanover Zoo is one of the most spectacular zoos in Europe.
Hidden gems only locals know about:
Germany is known for its geocaches hidden in lost places, and Hannover has some hidden gems that fall into this category. Old war bunkers are scattered around the city and some are even open to tourism. If you are interested in this sort of sightseeing, check with the Hannover tourism organization to see if there are available guided tours.
Geocachers who find all 19 geocaches will receive a clue to break the code for this TB. If you succeed (which you will), you’ll be lead to a location where you will receive a Geotoken as a prize.
What geocachers are saying about Schatzhüterin GeoTour:
“The crowning finale of a genius series! I am very excited about the Schatzhüterin series. It was a lot of fun, getting to know Hannover and the surrounding area through all the different caches. I found a lot of creative caches that I had not seen that way before. The motivation to do the entire Geotour was high in order to earn the Geocoin. ;-). We will place the Coin soon somewhere in the world and can’t wait to follow its travels. Thank you so much for the great tour and the loving design of each station!” –CeeJayyN’Enni
Visitors should set aside a whole weekend to complete the GeoTour. For additional information on the GeoTour, please visit https://www.schatzhueterin.de/.
