The garden is beautiful, though I advise to visit it around May because if you go in early spring the flowers may not bloom in their full beauty. Though it was a nice afternoon we spent there, strolling in the gardens. It felt like we were in a maze or in an enchanted garden, always exploring new pathways :)

The home of the House of Hannover and the Georges (George I is buried in the mausoleum). A beautiful complex of gardens, including English and French Baroque, and botanical. Packed with cultural events all summer long.

It is a nice garden but my recommendation is to go in the middle of springtime and the following weeks until fall because if you go starting spring I think you will not appreciate totally.

If you go to Hannover I would say don't miss this. It is a lovely park that is a peaceful lovely place to stroll. While it says it's patterned after Versailles - I would say that's making it a pretty high expectation and would disappoint you. But if you want to get out into the lovely park with it's grand...

A bit of Versailles in Hannover. We visited this park in March when the flowers had not yet bloomed but the gardens where nevertheless beautiful. We have local friends who told us a bit of the history and showed us around. They say during summer they bring some wine and sit by the waterfalls to fall in love again. I... More

We've been here twice, once in the summer and once at the end of winter, and both times were lovely. Our children love to meander through the hidden gardens and labyrinths, and we love the wildlife, art, and of course the gardens. Even though we've been twice, we still haven't seen it all. Highly recommend.

Be ready to walk a lot, ad it is a big park full of trees and attractive figures, but will be great to visit it in Spring season, especially the Botanic garden. As we went during winter season (early March), the entrance fee was 3 Euros per person, which i reasonable.

I spent a few hours on my last day in Hannover at these spectacular gardens. I brought some cheese, bread, and apple juice that I purchased from a farmers market on the way. I meandered through the gardens, got lost in the topiary mazes, had my picnic under a tree, and took in the quiet sense of peace that these... More

In my opinion, the entrance should be a lot cheaper, but either way it was a nice experience. I recommend a cooler weather, otherwise it makes it harder to walk around in the sun.
