About Herrenhausen Gardens, Hannover
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 - Write a Review
Not very friendly for English visitors. Sold a ticket for access to gardens, museum and botanical gardens.. was not told that the museum and botanical gardens were closed (museum stops at 4).. all fountains drained and not working :( don't visit in November.. don't buy the all access pass, just go with the gardens pass. The gardens were OK but definitely a summer activity !
Huge gardens symmetrically arranged modules. Every module looks same so nothing much to see. The middle water fountain is much fun with kids. Walking around this garden is bit boring unless you have a nice partner. The ticket is together for this main garden and the other Barggarten. It is better to see the other garden on a different day if you wish to explore this garden completely. Otherwise you miss a lot of things to explore in the other garden. The fireworks during the summer is much fun.
I came here at 5pm, after verifying in advance that the place closes at 6pm. Much to my dismay, the lady at the door refused to let me in. That is, she rudely muttered something in German that I did not comprehend. I tried to explain in English that I only need half an hour, but she completely disregarded me and continued to reply in a harsh tone, in a language that I could not understand.
I would take my Girlfriend everyday and _ night there to have a fantastic times together
German customer service is renowned to be cold and at times rude. Go to this location and experience that firsthand. Horrible horrible personnel. It's a nice place to visit in spring and summer.
