Hannover is located along the River Leine in the northern region of Germany. It is the capital of the state of Lower Saxony. The city was hit hard during the Second World War and most of the older buildings were damaged. Since then the city has been rebuilt and is now well-known for the many large exhibitions that are held in the city every year, such as CeBIT, the Hannover Fair, Oktoberfest Hannover, and Schutzenfest Hannover. These large festivals and fairs mean that Hannover Airport handles hundreds of flights each week, including flights from Bristol to Hannover.
