Passport / Visa

Germany can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.

Best Time to Visit

Best Time to Visit

While Hannover is always worth a visit, the summer months between May and September offer the most when it comes to both wonderful weather and great events such as the Maschsee Lake Festival or a Marksmen Funfair. The winter in Hannover can get quite cold and, due to its northern location, also snowy but the fantastic Christmas markets can only be enjoyed then. Although it may be more rainy, do visit Hannover during spring and autumn for seeing the city less crowded and in more of a relaxed, natural state.
