While Betterlife (formerly known as Reformhaus Bacher) can be very good to get something to eat in the otherwise not very vegan-friendly main station, you definitely have to watch out and read the labels.

However, they have definitely seen the signs of time. When I wrote my first review of them some 3 years ago, I was diasppointed because most of their fake meat products still contained dairy. Now thay have a wide range of vegan products.

They also have good full-grain bakeries and know which of them are vegan. Highly advisable if you do have a little time at the Hannover train station.

Pros: Many vegan products, good full-grain bread
Cons: some fake products contain egg/dairy

Beside the usual products of a Reformhaus, I found a lot of vegan fake meat and cheese, but most interestingly: vegan croissants and pastries (Rosinenschnecken). I know many places where you can't find such things in any bakery of the city!

Pros: vegan bakery, centrally located in the station
Cons: many non-vegan things

Although it's right in the train station and has some freshly baked goods, it doesn't offer much to vegans on the go. It's nice for Sunday shopping I guess when all the other similar stores in town are closed.

Cons: selections

Every Station should have one

It's great to see a health food shop in most German train stations and Hannover Hbf is no exception. Absolutely ideal for arrival into the city to get stocked up for the hotel: soya milk, fresh bread buns and meat free deli. Excellent range of products for such a small shop in a very busy station.
