Art & culture

Indoors and outdoors, Hannover is one big art exhibition. A street art project in the 1970s that provoked plenty of discussion and debate at the time has become a hallmark of the city. The Nana figures by Niki de Saint Phalle stand on the banks of the River Leine. The cultural scene as a whole is rich and varied. The state opera and theatre are internationally acclaimed.
