I had to take a rest from all the excitement of this town. I headed to the old town centre. The town is proud of its reputation for good food, and famous for its beer brewing. I had to have an ice cream.
In the Balhoff area you can enjoy Gothic Hanover. The Market church is the heart of the old town, a busy area where merchants and craftsmen used to live in 14th century.
Hanover is great place to visit. There is a very modern side of the city which I didn’t explore. I chose to enjoy the old town.
