The city attracts with its unmistakable charm. In the vibrant city centre of the Lower Saxony state capital, people have always met at the historical Kröpcke clock or "under the tail" - in other words at the equestrian statue in front of the main train station.

In the middle of the city the "red thread" leads as a painted line on the pavement to the most important sights. Tradition meets modernity at the world's largest marksmen’s fair.

The Maschsee Festival at the beginning of August with its unique maritime atmosphere in the middle of the city is the largest folk festival in Lower Saxony.
