The market hall Hannover is a market hall in Hannover which was put into operation in 1954 and calls today in the vernacular belly of Hannover. The market hall is opposite the old town hall on the edge of the oldest part of the town. The predecessor’s building established in 1892 here was destroyed in the Second World War with the air attacks on Hannover in 1943 largely and later ragged.
Originally agricultural products were brought in Hannover by the farmers of the surroundings in the city and were sold on public market places, like the old town-dweller market place in the market church. Markets protected the sufficient care of the city population of Hannover with food. At the end of 19th century the risen claims in hygiene let demands for an adjustment of the open markets arise.
The Kröpcke is the central place of the city of Hanover in Germany. It adopted the name from the café and in 1948 was officially named Kröpcke by the city of Hanover.
One of its notable features is the Kröpcke clock, which is a 1977 replica of an 1885 clock that was scrapped after World War II.
Upstairs there are a lot of stores you can shop in, like H&M, Galleria Kaufhof and Douglas. Our recomendations are the bookstore Hugendubel and Rituals, a cosmetic store. If you want to eat something you can go to Mövenpick, Giovanni L. (there you can get tasty ice cream), Jim Block or one of the many other restaurants around the place.
Downstairs, in the Niki-de-Saint-Phalle promenade and parts of the underground station, there are many food stores. Our favorites are Ditsch (a bakery) and Hey Ferry (especially their falafel rolls). If you follow the promenade you will get to the central station.
The station Kröpcke is the main station in the Hanover Stadtbahn network (the underground). It was built from 1968 to 1974 and opened in several parts through the 1970s and 1980s. At the time, it was one of Hanover’s largest construction sites, extending more than 30 meters underground. It has six platforms in total on three lines that cross each other in independent tunnels. Out of 14 lines in Hanover 12 go through this station.
The experience zoo was founded on the 4th may 1865. It has a space of 22 hectares containing about 3414 animals of 237 species like penguins, lions, tigers or elephants. The animals are displayed in different theme worlds fitting their origin, for example “Yukon Bay” or “Sambesi”. The zoo received the 2009/10 „Best Zoo“ award and more than 1.6 million people visit every year.
What we enjoyed most about the zoo was the opportunity to get really close to the animals. For example in the theme world „Yukon Bay“ you could see the animals under water, just separated through a pane, and you could even enter some of the enclosures so that you could pet the pelicans, goats and kangaroos, if they let you.
Another highlight is the „Winter-Zoo“, which opens every year during christmas season. Then a part of the zoo is decorated and you can go ice-scating, sledge or eat christmas and winter sweets. On top of that after 4 o’clock you can enter the winter zoo for free.
You can find the zoo in the district named after it “Zooviertel”. To get there you can take the underground line 11 in the direction „Zoo“.

Nanas in Hannover
Creator of the Nanas:
Nanas are sculptures made by a French Artist, Niki de Saint Phalle.
Niki started making art because she had a difficult childhood, her father sexually abused her when she was a child starting at age 11.

Additional Niki de Saint Phalle designed the cave by the Herrenhäuser Gardens.This Projekt was the last Projekt from Niki de Saint Phalle.
What are the Nanas and why are they made:
The first Nana was made in 1965. Nanas have oversized female bodies. Nana stands for self/confident female figure, this was made for the feminist movement in mid 1960s with the slogan “All power to the nana.”
Extra information about the nanas:
In 1966 the biggest nana was made in front of Stockholm Moderna Museet. It was a 29-meter-long plastic female body, called: Hon – en katedral. In this Nana you can find a cinema, a love niche in the leg, a milk bar in the chest and a mechanical uterus in the stomach.
Why are they in hannover and where:
In 1974, three colorful oversized Nanas made of polyester were placed on the Leibnizufer of the leash in Hanover. They became the foundation stone of the later sculpture mile Hannover. In 1970 there was a program to vote for an artists and people voted for Niki. The lineup initially led to protest storms, but also caused the first discussion about art in public street space.Now are the Nanas the emblem of the EXBO city.
