Set on the banks of the river Leine, Hanover offers visitors plenty of attractions to enjoy. Alongside its industrial centre, medical school and State Academy – teaching music and drama – you will happen across the neo-classical Opera House, the Historical Museum and the Hermann Löns Park, which is finely landscaped and popular with tourists. Adjoining it is the Tiergarten, habitat for around 200 red deer, wild horses and pigs.
