The “Maschesee” is Hannover’s city lake (established 1936) and a great escape from the city hustle and bustles. On weekends as well as in summer the city seems to meet there. A lot of folk is walking, cycling, running and inline skating as well as sun bathing around the lake. It takes about an hour to walk once around, the... More

This place still has great architecture because it was not bombarded on WWII. I liked their food and beer. Have been here twice for automotive shows. Germans are friendly and willing to help. You can walk at night and no one bothers you. Train is great, although I bought my tickets there is no one checking whether you have them... More

On the edge of the lake with views from the saunas and everything on site for complete relaxation. Heated outdoor swimming and in the Winter, rolling in the snow!

The Maschseefest in the summer is a very nice party spread over two weeks. Nice to have a drink around the lake and meet friends.

This huge artifical lake in the center of Hannover (built around 1930) is one of the hubs of leisure activities in this very green city. Lost of things to be done: sports, boating or plain walking and running around the lake. Other fine places for a relaxed day out. The 'Eilenriede', Europe's biggest town forest and the 'Herrenhausen Gardens', a... More

My daughter & I visited in August 2012 when visiting friends who were locals. We visited the Maschsee by bicycle (as is the local custom!) and cycled the whole perimeter. Not bad for someone who has bearly sat on a bike since being a teen! It was so lovely, we were bowled over. What made it more special was the... More

Love the Maschsee, especially at the time of the Maschseefest each August. It's a haven in the town - meeting place, great walk around it, Strandbad at the far end.

Spend an hour on a boat, relax with your family, enjoy people watching as they stroll around the Maschsee. What could be better? Take the boat ride offered by üstra for just six euros per adult. It's worth it. There's no bathroom on board, but the captain paused for us to let our daughter off quickly at one of the... More
