Maschee - Review
Hey, an artificial lake in the middle of the city! That’s always fun. It took the city three years to build it and it made the public very happy by creating jobs in a time of Depression (yes, this was the early 1930s). Now, the place is one of the city’s favourite retreats. A festival called Maschseefest (literally Swampfest) is held in the summer for a couple of weeks with much cabaret, cuisine and cannonplay (fireworks actually, but close enough). Boat clubs operate rowing and sailing fun in the summer; there’s a pretty little artificial beach at the south end; a 6 km long jogging track, cycle track circles the area, (skaters use it too); and when the city says its safe in winter, the people take to the ice for some serious hockey and skating. Also, no such place would be complete without some strange looking modern art so the Lion Bastion, the Hellebardier, Putto on the Fish and the Swimmer are posted around the park to creep you out. Seriously, they look creepy.
- A.k.a. the “Swamp”.

Maschee, Hannover Reviews
Best place for relaxation and sports. Very calm place with nice view and trees. Also nice for pets where u can have a nice walk. Also good to go there in a bike. Awesome place and a must to visit
Nice place. Also its artificial lake which is worthy to know.
Delicious water! It is highly recommended drinking it. This Lake is like a fountain of youth. Because after drinking you wouldn't get old.
Great place to go where one can find a few restaurants and a relaxing under the trees to watch the world go by. In summer (Aug) there is the Maschsee fest which has a number of dance floors, food stalls and drink stops where one can party the night away, everynight for 3 weeks. The water activities include a number of rowing sports, sailing and self propelled paddle boats. There is a swimming section where the beach is located on the southern side of the lake where bathing is permitted. A number of summer activities such as the annual Dragon Boat festival are held at the Maschsee.
A good way to wake up and recover from fridya night, by rowing round the see. Also nearby the Oxen bar! slice of Oxen with large slice of bread(Brot) and Stein of Beer for a classic German meal.
