Herrenhausen Gardens - Review
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.

Herrenhausen Gardens, Hannover Reviews
I highly recommend this place to visit. I went from Hamburg by train ( 2hrs ) it was a nice journey. The staff were really nice and helpful. Good English as well👍🏼. There’s a cafe and a small shop, toilets and lockers are available. I was able to visit the museum and the gardens, I couldn’t go to the botanical garden. The gardens in the palace are really nice, you can have a picnic and enjoy the atmosphere. You have to make sure that you go in a good “weather day”.
Beautiful scenery and very good value for money. If I remember correctly, the entry price was around €8 to €10. There are designated picnic areas so if you wanted to spend a few hours with friends or family on a sunny day it would be a great place to go. You can spend around 2 hours walking around at a leisurely pace.
The garden was huge and amazing the museum was great also and then the botanical gardens was just as good. I want to keep this simple so here it is It's the best 8 euro I have ever spent, if you haven't been before I'd strongly recommend you do only spoiler I'll give is that you better make sure you go early enough to use the one ticket for the 3 different exhibits (2 gardens and a museum) apart from that you will need the day also getting there was easy as the U4 stops right outside the front gates.
Well manicured and maintained garden expertly laid out over a vast expanse of land. Lots of history and ancient architecture to behold. My only visit barely scratched the surface of what this location has to over. Will definitely return on my next trip to Hanover.
This is a days visit at least. Three separate areas, of which my photos show only one. Well manicured gardens with fountains. Outside theater areas and stalls at various times. Smaller Museum included in the entry cost was very interesting including links to British royalty, but it appears there is also a larger one in a second part of the site.
