These are large, beautiful, extremely well maintained formal gardens in easy reach of the centre of Hannover - just take the 4 or 5 subway/tram. A very pleasant way to spend a quiet couple of hours. Plenty of space to wander and enjoy the flowers/trees/plants. Excellent seating throughout the gardens. I was lucky that on the day I visited that... More

It is the best attraction in Hannover. Gardens with various flowers are very relaxing and the view is beautiful. The first floor of the museum was not interesting but second floor was worth to see. The water show is not a show but a couple of fountains flowing. Tickets are 8 Euros for adults and 5 Euros for students etc.... More

The grotto was really nice, it is all made of little pieces of mirror glass and sculptures are very original

It is a place that you shoud not miss a visit if you are in Hannover. I've visited other royal gardens and I found that this one is worthy to walk and enjoy the barroc atmosphere.

I took the U bahn out to the gardens to see them and arrived to be confronted with a sign saying that they were closing early at 5pm and last admission was at 4pm. It was 4.20 and I asked if I could go in for half an hour to have a look round but the staff were singularly unhelpful... More

......but the garden itself will certainly be worth a visit just on it's own.Ticket for the aforementioned party (during approx. 3x4 days each July) seem to be available only in conjunction with a hotel booking. Definitely worth a try....

A fantastic baroque garden, well restored and maintained. The map given with your ticket is inadequate and does not show you the best route to go around, which means there is a lot of retracing of steps. The ticket is valid all day, but make sure you keep it with you or you will be asked to pay again. No... More

These are beautiful gardens - so good I went there twice!!!!!!!! Be warned that the fountains only operate at certain times. these are set out at the entrance. For Brits there is of course the connection to our royal family.

On the day of my visit the gardens were either preparing for, or cleaning up after, a series of shows or exhibitions. Because of this there were half assembled stages everywhere that blocked the views of many gardens and walkways. Many of the fountains were also not working. Not sure if there was a problem with the water system or... More
