Six kilometers of walking and biking paths surround the Maschsee. The perfectly flat terrain makes for easy going by foot or bike and there are plenty of benches for taking a break. There are a couple of restaurants near the paths around the lake.

You visit Hannover? Go maschsee! Really. The page is man made, it's the heart of Hannover and you can boat on it, if you like. Pick a sunny day and enjoy. Full pull.

The lake is a very nice place for a relaxing walk or sport activities in the center of the city. You also have several places to grab a cup of coffee while enjoying the view.
