Retail By City


city rank #19

City Overview

Hanover is the capital of the federal state of Lower-Saxony and as such plays a dominant role within the city region of Hanover, Brunswick, Wolfsburg and Göttingen. Main pillars of the local economy are the automotive and service industry with Continental and TUI as major representing firms. Hanover is also famous for its trade fairs, e.g. Hannover Messe, which is the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology.

The major high street in Hanover is Georgstrasse, which is the place where all major retailers are present. Other important high streets are Karmarschstrasse, Grosse Packhofstrasse and Bahnhofstrasse. The latter has a second level, provided by the Nikki de Saint Phalle-Passage which prolonges the shopping axis towards the main station. Hannover derives its importance as a retail destination from its huge and affluent catchment area and has a market potential comparable with Düsseldorf or Stuttgart.
