Nice city forest for running, cycling or taking your dog for a walk. I prefer the part behind the zoo because it is the most " wild" bit without all the logging going on in the more popular parts.

Great park to run in. Lots of bike and running paths, plus grassy meadows for sunbathing. There are playgrounds for kids, plus a lovely cafe near the music school.

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
