There is scarcely any other region that can offer such diverse and attractive leisure amenities as Hannover: You can stroll through the baroque Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen or enjoy the unbridled greenery of the Eilenriede city forest, while the Maschsee Lake has a Mediterranean feeling that visitors revel in. Hannover’s lively city centre attracts shoppers with its extensive pedestrian zone and a series of arcades and shopping malls. In the Old Town you can stroll through narrow medieval streets and relax on the banks of the River Leine or in one of the countless cafés. Lovers of the arts are drawn by Hannover’s theatres, museums and art galleries. The Hannover Region offers tourist highlights such as Lake Steinhude or Marienburg Castle. Among the summer events are the Maschsee Lake Festival and the biggest Marksmen’s Funfair in the world.
