Beautiful garden, very impressive landscaping
Sep 2021
Beautiful and large garden. The diversity in landscaping is breathtaking. Keep in mind that it's pretty crowded here and apparently a popular shooting spot for married couples. All in all would recommend coming here and to take your time to walk through most of the garden which should take an hour or 2/3.

Beautiful garden outside the Altstadt in Hannover. Great spot for a walk/run or just to sitdown, enjoy a drink and get some sunlight. Loved it

One of the top attractions in Hannover, you can spend a few hours enjoying you walk, which includes magnificent buildings, botanical gardens, the famous fountain, impressive landscaping etc. Especially good in summer when the sunshines!

What a fabulous place
Oct 2020 • Solo
I was a little deterred by the rain but I wanted to visit the gardens and I was so glad I did.
Tickets are€8 but that includes the museum and the botanical gardens. On a pleasant weather day you could literally spend hours in this garden. So much to see and so well maintained. It was a real highlight of my trip.

Magnificent and huge garden complex
Sep 2020 • Solo
Very beautiful gardens ! If you like gardens, don't miss it when you are in Hannover.
The Georgengarten and Welfengarten are parks and are free to visit. The Welfengarten is behind the grand university building, which is worth a stop when you are coming by the tram.
For the stunning baroque garden (Grosser Garten) ,the botanical garden (Berggarten) and a visit to the castle you pay € 8.
It took me a full day to see it all. Lots of walking, luckily there are plenty of benches. Take note that the fountains are only working a few hours a day, and these hours are different for weekdays and weekends, so check the website. The Grotto by Niki de Saint Phalle is also very special.
Easy to get here from Hannover centre with tram 4 or 5, leaving from Kröpcke. It takes you 10 minutes and the tram stop is in front of the entrance.

Check fountain schedule before going

Fountains were switched off. They should inform people about the schedule before selling tickets. Check the schedule before going.

Discriminating and dog-hating place!
Aug 2020 • Couples
Discriminating and dog-hating place! You cannot bring a dog in a leach to a garden ??? What’s wrong in their heads.

Don’t waste your time here!

nice gardens
Feb 2020
the gardens and museum are located on the outskirts of the city but the frequent underground stops directly outside the main entrance. The gardens cover a large area so give yourself plenty of time and wear suitable footwear. The gardens have large number of statues but the hghlight for me was the spectacular grottto at the entrance to the main gardens. There is also a small museum in the complex that is worth visiting

Amazing Gardens

The garden is so well maintained and designed it's definitely impress you.
There are plenty of space for kids to play and run around. The museum attached has some great historic collection as well. It's definitely a must visit place in Hannover.

Breathtaking
Oct 2019
Wear comfortable shoes and plan plenty of time. Visit to Herrenhaeuser Gardens can easily be a day trip, especially when connected with visiting botanical garden Berggarten and aquarium.
I personally spent there about 5 hours and made just Herrenhauser and very quickly the botanical garden. It was a breath taking experience although it was in fall and most of the flowers were gone already.
Entrance fee is 8 eur for Herrenhauser gardens, palace museum and Berggarten. It is not necessary to visit all in one day. Ticket is simply valid until used. There is a big paid parking next to the gardens but they are also easily accessible by U-Bahn. The stop is named after gardens and is located just a few steps from entrance of both of them.
