Hanover Forest Eilenriede

The Steuerndieb is a popular tourist restaurant in north-eastern Hanover directly to Forest Eilenriede. Even our forefathers have there been on Sunday walks on the old Waldchaussee (forest road) starting from the Zoo Quarter or from Lister Tower. Already in the Middle Ages there was an inn here at the old Landwehr close to the Bauerngraben. But what happened here today? We explore a trail the eventful history of this forest and wooded area on the northeastern edge of the Forest Eilenriede. Past the Waldstation, we see both the remains of the afforested with spruce production forest, as well as parts of the revived standing natural forest. We cross major transport routes, such as the Messeschnellweg (Fairground Highway), Schiffgraben and the remains of the old Waldchaussee. And we see a lot of nature in the middle of the city of Hanover. This tour in the northern Eilenriede takes about 2 hours. With additional waypoints, the duration increased to 2.5 to 3 hours.


For groups up to 40 people we have many customized walks or hikes in Hanover city forest on offer. Whether you prefer the park-like part in the north of Forest Eilenriede (List, Oststadt, Zooviertel) or whether you prefer the wilder, natural part of the south of Eilenriede (Kleefeld, Bischofshol, Bult), we have several beautiful trails for you and your group on offer.
