Beautiful formal gardens for a visit of several hours. We arrived shortly after 11am, and first, spent time around the "water wall", by the time we got to the fountains, they had stopped. This also included the Water wall now without running water. This really lowers the magnificence of the whole place a lot. The mosaics in the Grotto were... More

The greenery is awesome . Nothing to regret. The landscaping is beautiful. Miniatures and sculptures give it an additional good luck. The water fountains are welcome during summers.

Although a lot of visitors the gardens didn't seem crowded. A lot of history attached to the gardens. Places to sit and enjoy the scenery also able to get a drink and/or something to eat.

A wonderful surprise! Beautiful gardens, acres of walking, several fountains and a unique grotto for starters. This is a must if you are staying in Hannover; get the combined ticket and see the botanical gardens as well, almost too much for one visit. Get the no 4 Tram from Kropcke

The gardens are huge. Very impressive. They shut down the big fountain at noon, until 4 pm. So get there in the morning to see the fountain running. We got there just before it shut off. There are mazes to navigate, and just lots to see.

If you enjoy gardens and open park spaces, this is a good stop. Prices are reasonable and the gardens are beautiful. Bring nice shoes and plan to sit and enjoy a while. Do this when you have a nice day to sit and relax there. Do not try to "run through" the gardens

Beautiful , spacey. Well worth it. 8€ . If you like stately gardens in pristine condition. Receipt also includes museum and botanical gardens. You do not have to do all on the same day. After 20:00 there are illuminations of the garden. But check which month.all of June. Fire work displays also. But check

Beautiful!!!! The money paid to see is worth it, every single penny. I would go over and over again. Makes you admire the beauty of plants whether you are plant lover or not.
