They have the pretty names Sophie, Charlotte and Caroline - the Nanas in Hanover. It's best to find out which one has which name. These sculptures by French artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) were erected two years after the flea market was established on the banks of the River Leine in 1972. They speak the visual language of Pop Art and are sensual and colourful. They are of course available to buy as miniatures from the tourist information centre opposite the main railway station.

Nanas Hannover

The three figures are a fun accent for Hanover, the start of the Sculpture Mile and an impetus for everyday culture with a zest for life. More of the artist's work can be seen in the Grotto of the Great Garden of Herrenhausen, where she designed three rooms shortly before her death.

On Saturdays, the focus is on haggling and talking shop around the Nanas at Germany's oldest flea market. From dawn until late afternoon, everything that is not nailed down is traded. An absolute cult for strollers and bargain hunters!
