Class trip to Hanover

Class trips to the capital of Lower Saxony offer you a comprehensive overview of 21st century Germany. You can learn about the country's origins, for example about past power houses like the Hanseatic League. Primarily, however, you will experience modern-day Germany, ranging from nature at Lake Maschsee, engineering at Volkswagen factory and modern art at Sprengel Museum. As a representation of Germany's status quo, Hanover is your best choice.
