“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Great place for a drink or meeting friends. Lovely lit area serving drinks by the lakeside. Fountains and lighting make it romantic whilst chilled out. visually a nice place to relax in the evening and a firm local preferred hangout.

“A Hannover must do”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Sadly in winter this pretty lake is only available for running walking cycling or blading round. It's flat so perfect for a gentle jog and has interesting distractions on the way round. Would be even more lovely in the summer when all the cages an lake terraces are open to have a drink and enjoy the view.

“A peaceful oasis in the middle of a modern city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

The Machsee is a large artificial lake near the Rathaus. There are bars, cafes and restaurants, lovely walks and you can rent a rowing boat. I visited the Machsee during the Machseefest. Unfortunately it was my last day, so I was unable to experience the festivities. One charming feature was small footbridge, where newlyweds fastened padlocks engraved with their names to the balustrade.

“Delightful lake in Hannover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Maschsee is an artificial lake on the outskirts of Central Hannover, the stretch of water is surrounded by restaurants and bars and pleasant areas to sit and relax. On the day of our visit which was a cold day in December the whole area was alive with people jogging, roller-blading and walking around the lake. It is hard to believe that the lake is in the middle of a bustling city. Definitely worth another visit, probably in summer next time.
