Event Location

The EXPOWAL, the official landmark of Expo 2000, is certainly the most architecturally impressive location in Hanover and stands for very special events. Located directly at a beautiful lake, the all around glassed EXPOWAL is a versatile, extraordinary location over 2 levels with an open gallery.
