Very close to Hannover centre - very nice open space and (manmade) lake. Take a look into the history of it while you're there

Circular walk of about 4 miles with views of city skyline and the superb Rathaus. Take bus to HDI arena and end walk in Courtyard marriot next to bus stop with a beer / hot drink!

Excellent to sit by and watch the water view! They also offer boat rides or you can just sit by the stairs and enjoy! Ice cream counter right behind! One of the major tourist attractions of the city! The stadium is close by as well! I just love the lake side!
