You can stroll through the Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen, enjoy the greenery of the Eilenriede city forest or mediterranean feeling at Maschsee Lake. Hannover’s theatres can draw lovers of the arts and concerts and the offerings of its museums, such as Sprengel museum Hannover which houses a world-renowned collection of 20th century and contemporary art. Other highlights for visitors are Lake Steinhude or the Deister Hills. Hannover’s city centre offers an extensive pedestrian zone, the Ernst-August-Galerie and a series of elegant arcades.
