Europe's best city forest?

Take a bicycle and the day off. Stop at two or three beer gardens. And experience Germany's most sustainable city.

The forest is absolutely huge. It is a perfect place to go running or biking or even for a walk. There are also a few nice bars/restaurants serving beer and bratwurst inside the forest.

This is one of Germany's most beautiful if not THE most beautiful city park. Paved and gravel walkways. The Eilenriede city forest area covers xxx sqmiles. Playgrounds and BBQ areas can be found throughout. Bicyclists will find non-cracked paved bikeways to speed up, skaters too. A truly place for recreation.

I grew up near the Eilenriede and every time I get back to Hannover I stroll through that beautiful City Park! It's just as beautiful as Central Park in New York! I have so many found memories of the Eilenriede!!

The headline already says it. In case you are in search of a quiet place or just trying to find some cool place in the summer. This is the place to go.

Not sure how you go about reviewing an urban forest! We were here in the autumn. It's easy to walk to from the city centre, and seems to stretch for miles. Lots of trails through the woods. Quite a few joggers and cyclists so stay alert if you are birdwatching! Lots of birdlife, and feels as if you are miles... More

Every time I am in Hannover either on business or leisure, I have to visit the Eilenriede. Normally staying at the Kleefelder Hof Hotel, it just takes 3 minutes across the main road to start jogging or running. If I have more time, I drive up the the main entrance (near the Eilenriede Hotel). At the entrance there is an... More

I've walked it in summer heat, and I've walked the Eilenreide when my tracks in the snow would have made me easy to follow. It is a wooden area not far from Weisse Kreuz (White Cross) area near the Listermeile. You can see all at one visit. Plan to spend at least a half day to see everything. Go to... More
