InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Hannover

Hello to all Americans in Hannover! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Hannover? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Hannover which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: advantageously situated not only in Germany but also within Europe, expats in Hannover will have plenty of opportunity to explore far and wide. The state capital of Lower Saxony is a comparatively inexpensive city known for the annual Hannover Messe (trade fair), hosted at the world’s largest fairground, the local cultural offerings, the easy access to nature, and much more! With the local public transportation system consisting of buses, the Stadtbahn (tram and underground trains), and regional train connections, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the surrounding cities and towns, which are just a train ride away from Hannover’s center.

Although Hannover has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Hannover, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
