Just about 30 minutes south of Hannover is a castle to break your hearts. Straight out of a fairy tale, this Gothic Revival wonder is named for Queen Marie, beloved of King George V, the last king of Hannover. They could have used this place as a stand in for Hogwarts, what with its many turrets, battlements and towers. This is the place to immerse yourself in Hanoverian Court life history, traipsing from room to magnificent room. If you can time it right, you might get to visit Hannover castle during a musical concert, which it hosts frequently. Want a wedding to trump all weddings? You can have yours at the chapel here. If you take the castle tour, you get to go up to the tower; from a height of 44 metres, the view of the forest is incredible.

  • It's a very nice place to visit near Hanover, a nice castle in northern Germany. Looks like a fairy tale castle, you fall in love of this castle. if you are in Lower Saxony its perfect for a weekend getaway. You can reach the hill about 2 km walk from train station, from where 10 minutes hike to the hill top where the castle is situated. Best is to drive on sunny day and spend more time in gardens.

  • The castle itself is amazing! Interior and furniture are well preserved. Also nice to go for a walk in a forest around. And tower is a must to visit! But tour was bit disappointing: 1. tour guides speak only German. Why can't you hire at least one English speaking guide and make few times a day English speaking tours?? 2. instead they give you an audio guide. There is not much information on it and mostly not very interesting (except Library, this part was good). You miss a lot of interesting information without knowing German language. 3. "costume tour" doesn't mean you gonna wear costumes as you might think looking at their website, only guide will were a costume. 4. why it is not allowed to make pictures inside the castle?! It is ridiculous...

  • I fell in love with this place. It is magical! definitely a must go / see place if you are in the area. Its worth the drive. We did all 3 tours and enjoyed them a lot. My favorite was the "Ascent to the Tower" tour. You must do this one if you want a breathtaking view from above. We also ate at the restaurant. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't amazing either. Overall a great place to visit.

  • Very beautiful castle , the lake near the castle is also good. The view from the road below of the castle is very good. There is a cafe in the castle. It was closed early the day I went . They are said to have a nice choices of cakes. There are also some weddings held in the castle. There is a small canal running in front of the castle where people canove. I would suggest to cycle the way to the castle in the morning.

  • Most beautiful place in lower Saxony and can be seen from 4km away. Ancient history yep it's little expensive as a student but can send few hours and difficult to walk. Loved it.
