I like this man-made lake for its settign and as a place to stroll. There are a couple of places to stop to rest and eat - including one excellent restaruant.

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!

I like to go running around the Maschsee after work. There's always a ton of other runners and people/familiea going for a walk so there's no need to feel unsafe. One lap around the lake is 6K and the area is just really nice.

Maschsee is a nice place to be. You can go there just for a walk, to relax and to watch a nice sunset as well as go there for running, cycling or skating. In winter you can even ice-skate on the lake. Every summer there's the big 'Maschseefest' which I can really recommend!

It is a very pleasant walk around the Marschsee. At a guess, it probably about 7km around. Walk is flat.

This is a small lake but has its own charm. There is a cafe located in Courtyard Marriott where you could grab a drink and sit down by the lake side to enjoy the breeze and look at the scenery. Nice place to spend some time sipping a coffee or beer.

Definitely this is not some beautiful natural lake, like, for example, the lake at Steinhude, a hour or so north of Hannover. But it's an amazing feat of engineering (during the Nazi era) and a great place to walk around.
