"no accent"

My German teacher has mentioned quite a few times that in the Hanover area people speak German "without an accent". This is a concept that I just can't get my head round. Surely they speak with a Hanover accent?

What would be considered "accent free" English? And in other languages, what are the areas where the people speak with "no accent"? :)
