“Walking, Boating, Eating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Very popular outdoor destination to enjoy on a sunny day, or in winter when the lake is frozen and you can ice-skate on it

“A good place for a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

We went for a walk around the Maschsee after a visit to the Rauthaus. It is an attractive lake with a lot of activity including rowing and sailing. We enjoyed our walk abd then got on to a 1200 bus for a trip around the central area of Hannover.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

This lake is beautiful at any time of the year. Good for jogging around or just walking.

Watch out when the weather gets cool because part of it is a nude beach. In the winter it can freeze over so you can skate on it. All in all, a nice place worth checking out.

“Frozen lake, but tacky surroundings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Visited the lake when it was frozen and open for the public to walk on due to minimum required ice thickness. Great experience and also to see all the locals participating in various ways. However, the surroundings are rather tacky and the food stores that line the lake sell the proverbial sausage and glu wine. The Courtyard Marriott hotel is the closest class, but is kind off brought down in status by the hordes of local visitors visiting their restaurants.

“Hangout spot for locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

Locals love to hang out at the Maschsee during the summer. There are different bars around it where you can end your busy sightseeing day with a nice cold beer. The Maschsee fest is also worth a visit.
You have a beautiful walking/running path around the lake.
