Hanover: A Closer Look at the Capital of Lower Saxony

Tiếng Việt

Lacking the charm of neighbouring Hansa cities, Hanover has never scored high on the list of most favourite destinations in Germany. Most people assume that this place is solely an industrial centre with nothing else to see. Yet hidden beneath the “industrialised” façade is a city full of history and cultural heritage which are only visible to those with patience and a keen eye.

Berlin Mitte: The City’s Heart and Soul

Tiếng Việt

More than just the centre of a city, Berlin Mitte is the perfect overture to all that is idiosyncratic about German capital – a dynamic, world-opening city with a chequered history. Tragedies occurred in this borough, but so did joy and celebration. It’s also here that policies are made, art is created and literature is written. In short, Mitte is Berlin’s heart and soul.
