In the princes' footsteps
Herrenhausen Palace and the Herrenhausen Gardens are the absolute highlights and a must-see in the noble city of Hanover. "Sophie's World", the gardens once laid out by Sophia of Hanover, attract around 600,000 visitors each year.
After a stroll across the old town with its historic half-timbered buildings, visitors are spoilt for choice with the rich cultural programme on the city's stages. Entertainment is guaranteed during the 3-week Maschseefest, Germany's largest lake festival.
