  • One of the best places you can visit in this city of hannover. The access is fairly convenient from the city centre via tram. The entry price is 8 euros which includes full access or the a) gardens b) small museum and c) botanical gardens across the street (where the sea life is). So I would recommend visiting all 3 places. You can easily spend 2-3 hours even if you are just skimming through it. It’s peaceful, photogenic and serene place for sure.
  • Great place for photo sessions, relaxing walks or botanical documentation. The flowers are really pretty, even at the end of August. I recommend going there when it isn't very hot outside so you can make most of your visit.
