As pretty up close as they are from the air, the Baroque Great Garden, the Botanical Berggarten, and the EnglishGeorgengarten and the Welfengarten are tremendous landscaping achievements.
The Great Garden: 50 acres of green geometrical triumph, the garden holds a number of small festivals throughout the year as well as a magnificent fireworks festival in summer. Theatrical and musical performances are the norm too. There’s an enchantingly pretty and intricately decorated grotto here decorated with crystal, minerals, glass and seashells.
The Beerggarten (Mountain Garden): An ugly duckling (vegetable garden) turned into a swan (exotic conservatory), this place once used to be the site of experimental tobacco and silkworm breeding. It’s got a marvellous collection of palms and there’s also a tropical greenhouse.
The Georgengarten: a mile long alley of lime trees furnished with ponds, streams, a temple to Gottfried Leibniz, a caricature museum (with it’s own hours) and lots of pretty bridges. People watching here is fantastic when students from the nearby university take to the lawns.
Welfengarten: The beautiful grounds of the University if Hanover.
