What a beautiful setting! Plenty of space to sit and enjoy coffee. Try the semi enclosed beach chairs that are popular on the Baltic coast. Launch's are available to explore the length of this man made lake or, perhaps try a kayak?

Just imagine: an artificial lake with perimeter of approx. 6,5 km. Created by bare hands - completely without any machinery. In the very middle of the city. That's definitely rare to see. So come and have a long and nice walk around Maschsee.

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.

The nicest place in Hannover, I fall in love with this place. I can spend half of the day sitting there and do nothing. Summer is the perfect time to visit there. The view is really nice, my wife even plan to take our wedding...More
