What do I need to know about living in Hannover?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Hannover, they said:

"Before retiring in Hannover, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is generally lower than in other German cities. They should also research the local healthcare system and the availability of medical services. Additionally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, as many people in Hannover speak German. It is also important to research the local culture and customs, as well as the climate and weather in the area.
