I've visited in November, May and now July. It's really beautiful and there are always new places to discover. It's worth going when the water works are on, which is most of the time. I hear there is also concerts and plays there. I would love to visit for one!

We visited the gardens on a Sunday and it only cost €8,00 per person which included the gardens, botanical gardens and the renovated schloss. The gardens were really nice, especially the botanical gardens. However, we were expecting more from the Schloss which looked impressive from the outside, but inside it was just a collection of objects, photos, pictures over 3... More

Herrenhausen Gardens is a beautiful place to enjoy garden architecture. They are an internationally famous ensemble of garden arts and culture that ranks among the most important historical gardens in Europe. The Baroque garden in Herrenhausen was created by Electress Sophie (1630-1714).

There is an entrance ticket to the garden (which includes the royal garden, a museum and the Botanical garden). The Museum is not so impressive ( 3o minutes is more than enough to go thru the museum). The Royal garden is very big and the top view is splendid. The collections of the flowers are not too much, but the... More

This is walkable from the city along a nice park, almost in s straight line for a mile and a bit. I was dubious at first at the 8 EUR price for a garden but it is a lovely setting. On a nice day you could spend 2-3 hours here. The gardens are immaculately kept and have plenty of places... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Herrenhausen Gardens. It is a grand example of a classic European formal garden executed with German precision. It is certainly a must see for any visit to Hannover or anywhere near there.

Scenic and beautiful. I have never seen anything like this before in my life. I recommend staying for awhile to truly take in all the garden has to offer. Bring your walking shoes, some suntan lotion, and be ready for some nice pictures!

I walked to the garden from Hannover Main Station and really enjoy it a lots. Fantastic Baroque Garden with a surprise in every corner. The Theatre place with all the golden statues will take your breath way and the high fountain made me stop breathing. It was raining during my visit but suddenly the sun shined and the garden is...

We came to Hannover specifically to see Herrenhausen and it did not disappoint. The Großergarten is beautiful. Please note - the fountains are not on all day! We were lucky and got there with about 30 minutes to spare. My daughter especially loved the very tall water feature. She got soaked! I have a feeling that we weren't supposed to... More

We skipped the museum. Herrenhausen's formal gardens had just been planted (end of May); if you know the plants you can imagine what they will look like in another month. The fountains turned on around 3 pm. Two things NOT TO MISS are the Grotto in the Herrenhausen Garden and the Berggarten Botanical across the street. In the Berggarten the... More
