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.

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”.
A quiet and relaxing place. Lovely with the autumn colors, too. Didn't want to pay ticket to go in, so just strolled on the path all around it and it was still a good experience. (The pic is of the tallest fountain.)
One of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen. Very nice location and best maintained with a touch of legacy... People as usual non interfering & friendly. A place for chill out.
Beautiful garden in suburb area. Missed the museum and another garden on the street opposite because I was short of time😅.. But go there in the morning you will receive a quiet personal space;) with some fresh air!! You will definitely need this!
Very beautiful parks. Also, you have to visit Feuerwerkswettbewerb - it is a firework competitions among different countries. Light show and music - everything is perfect! It is better to go inside the park, but be careful, you have to buy tickets in advance.
