Having taken one hundred years to build, it has been restored to its full 15th century splendor and is a truly first-rate attraction. The Town Hall is well located, across from the Market Hall, where the locals buy their fresh produce.
Hannover-Stocken is home to The Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Transporter (VWN) factory, which is the largest employer in the region. Continental AG is nearby, a German tire and automobile parts manufacturer that works closely with VW. Other major companies in Hanover include the headquarters of TUI AG, and offices of insurance companies like Hannover Re, whose headquarters are east of the city centre. The economy in Hannover is focused on industries such as automotive, energy solutions, information and communications technology, life sciences, optical technologies, creative industries, and production engineering. In and around the community of Hannover you will find a diverse selection of serviced office space.

There is the Grotto (the interior was designed by the French artist Niki de Saint-Phalle), the Gallery Building, the Orangery, and the two pavilions that were designed by Remy de la Fosse. The town has connected 36 of its most important sights in the city centre with 4.2 kilometres (3 miles) of a painted, thin, red line.
