Gardens and Parks of Hanover


In the 1930s, the town council wanted to close a long-standing gap between Eilenriede Forest and the Tiergarten Park. The swampy, constantly damp ground of the former Roder Brook has long hampered the use of the land. They had decided to make the course more complex drainage measures a landscape park, which contains the soil moisture as a theme. Of the planners exclusively native plants were selected that have references to the wet landscape, and formed into an idealized Lower Saxony countryside. The park was named after the famous German poet Hermann Loens and has since then many walkers presented the beauty of local flora and fauna. A tour through the Hermann-Loens-Park starting at the windmill takes about 2 hours. Alternatively, a circular path about 30 min. longer with similar content in combination with the Mardalwiese is possible. In combination with a walk through the Tiergarten Park the walk takes about 3 hours.

Von-Hinueber Garden

The original charm of an old landscape garden close to the monastery of Marienwerder reveals a lot from the enlightened mind of the builders. Monastery bailiff Jobst Anton von Hinueber built late 18th century one of the first parks in the style of an English garden in Germany. The Hexenturm (witch tower) and other design elements also bear witness to his membership of the Freemasons. Von Hinueber has recorded the natural elements of the landscape of northern Leine floodplains and integrated them into his garden. Well, here's to see the terracing of wetlands and the outline with flood channels and residual pools. With a plain lying inland dunes and the Quantelholz the balance of an old riparian forest directly at the River Leine here is a piece of preserved primeval landscape. The route through the park is about 2 hours. In combination with the Monastery Forest Marienwerder and / or Rossbruchgraben the tour is about 1 hour longer.

The Royal Gardens of Hanover

An individual guided tour of the George garden, which was created in 1830 by landscape gardener Schomburg of several predecessor gardens as a landscape garden in the English style takes, depending on content and route between 1.5 and 2 hours. There are combinations with classic tours in the Great Baroque Garden or the Botanical Garden (Berggarten) possible. The duration of the tours is each time about 1.5 hours.
