Hermann-Loens-Park Tour

In the 1930s, people in the city council of Hanover finally wanted to close a long-standing gap between the Town Forest Eilenriede and the Tiergarten Park. The construction of the railway lines from Hannover to Berlin opened up the countryside east of Kleefeld in the 19th century. With the Annastift an eponymous handicap facilities settled on the old road to Kirchrode. The swampy, constantly damp ground in the former Roderbruch, an alder wood following a moor lake has long hampered the use of the area at Anna Pond. In the course of elaborate measures for drainage they had decided to make a landscape park, which contains the soil moisture as a theme. Landscape planners selected exclusively native plants with a reference to the river wetlands and formed the area into an idealized Lower Saxony countryside. Typical Lower Saxon buildings have been re-erected in the park as a kind of open-air museum. The park was named in August 1939 after the famous German writer and poet Hermann Loens and has since then presented many walkers the beauty of local flora and fauna.
