Herrenhausen Garden

The Great Garden of Herrenhausen is one of Hannover’s major landmarks. It is a beautiful example of a 17th century baroque garden. It underwent several expansions, and obtained its current shape under the patronage of Princess Sophie of the Palatinate, Electress of Hannover, whose son, George I of Great Britain, became the first British king of the house of Hannover to ascend the throne.
You can visit 50.2 hectares of baroque model gardens, large fountains, and discover sculptures and art of Niki de Saint Phalle, who designed an impressive contemporary Grotto at this historical site.
