My wife and I enjoyed visiting these gardens and the adjacent museum in mid-October 2016. We were greatly impressed by the related history, the magnificent fountains, and the beauty of its baroque style. We have been in many similar European sites and there is no doubt, these garden are some of the best. The Schloss Herrenhausen Gardens can be easily... More

The wonderful gardens of Herrenhausen, will let you walk through spectacle cascade of flower gardens, fountains, swan ponds and a maze. You will find that you are lost in time when walking through the gardens, with its Bell Fountain and Garden theater. Every year Herrenhausen is hosting an international fireworks competition from around the world. Canada came in on the... More

The history to the gardens along with the technical know how and accomplishments at that time is pretty impressive. It must have been a sisyphian task to build the fountains at that time. They accomplished the feat with wooden hollowed logs as the pipelines. May not have lasted too long but was very impressive indeed. Honest representation of the Baroque... More

The great garden of Harrenhausen palace is an extraordinary spectacle that has been famous in Europe for centuries ! It clearly has a French influence and reminds you of Gardens of Versailles! Angela Markel received Obama here during his visit in 2016. The palace was completely destroyed in WWII and has been painstakingly restored in recent years !!

Very easy to get, after a walk along the path from Hannover town. Metro 5 goes right past. Great value at €8 and a lovely walk around the flowers. I also eat in the restaurant, which was fantastic. It was a bit expensive, but a great to see and be seen.

The garden and setting is fantastic. The personel and regulations unfriendly. If you need to exit Gardens you are not let in again. You are treated as an intruder not a welcomed guest. I left without entering the museum

We went to the gardens and we're impressed that the entrance price included the botanical gardens as well, it was another beautiful day and the gardens were stunning,I'd give yourself a good 4 hours, so you can appreciate them properly, try get there when the fountains come on! Take a picnic and relax.

Huge baroque garden with a great amount of variety - both regarding the plants and the actual design. They have fountains, a hedge maze, ponds, alleys, and much more. It takes a long time to see it all, but it is a great outing. If you are really lucky, your visit will coincide with one of the fireworks shows: they... More

Very large gardens with pools and statues everywhere. Maintained to very high standards. A very enjoyable stroll leaves you peaking through gates and hedge openings everywhere to see what is there. These grounds are amazing and we loved it.

We attending the international firework show in the gardens which was a wonderful event. We had time to walk the gardens prior to the start and the gardens did not disappoint. We will be back for sure so we can spend more time in the gardens as well at the museum.
