Top Rated Attractions in Hanover

Search Radius (Miles)
Eilenriede

Hanover's Eilenriede forest is undoubtedly the city's most popular landmark and its green lung. It covers an area of 650 hectares (1606.18 acres) in the middle of the city, which makes it unique. Even the massive Hyde Park in London and the Bois de Boulogne in Paris are smaller in area than Eilenriede. The park gets its name from the alder trees, known as Erlen or Ellern in German, which used to grow on its moist, marshy soil. Apart from this, oak and beech trees are also commonly found at this park. Pine, larch, alder, birch trees and other species also grow here in large numbers. A haven for hikers and cyclists, Eilenriede is truly a nature's paradise in the heart of the city.

Tiergarten

112 hectares (277 acres) of this recreational forest are inhabited by a large number of wild animals, making it one of Hanover's most popular attractions. The Tiergarten was created in the 17th century by Duke Johann Friedrich for hunting, and today is home to a wide array of wildlife including fallow deer, wild boars, foxes, and avian species such as hawks, ravens and woodpeckers among others.

New Town Hall

This splendid New Town Hall, boasting a castle-like marvel and beauty, was built in 1901 on oak piles and since has become a well-known landmark of the city. Kaiser Wilhelm II inaugurated it in 1913. Besides the architectural attractions, it contains huge halls with wonderfully carved doors and beautiful portraits. Four small models of the town depict the building, its destruction and reconstruction. Visitors can also enjoy a great view of Hanover from a special observation point. Guided tours are available on request. After an interesting tour here, you can enjoy at its restaurant, Gartensaal, which serves you a scrumptious menu of International delicacies.

Maschsee

An artificial lake built close to the city center in 1936, Lake Maschsee is one of Hanover's most popular recreation areas. 78,000 square meters (83,9585 square feet) in size but no deeper than two meters, the lake is perfect for sailing, windsurfing, rowing, swimming and ice-skating in winter. The bathing area includes a 300 meter (984 feet) long beach and has no admission fee. The summertime festival Maschseefest offers a host of entertainment for the whole family.

Berggarten

Berggarten which was once a small time vegetable garden is now a stunning and mesmerizing natural house with different planet varieties from the tropical rain forests. The place is beautiful and filled with colorful plants, flowers and species which are very unique to the area. There are close to 11,000 different plants and the themed greenhouse is a perfect place for any nature lover. You can spend hours talking to the local experts and understanding the plant life.

Aegidienkirche

The ruins of this venerable old church are certainly worth a look. It is probable that a chapel was built on the site as early as the 10th Century, but it was replaced by a Romanesque basilica, the wall of which is still visible. The interior of the church was gutted during a 1943 air raid and the ruins now stand as a memorial. The interior contains a sculpture by Lehmann and a bell from Hiroshima, Hanover's twin town.
