#4 of 12 in Parks in Hannover
Known amongst Hamburg residents as the green lung of the city, Eilenriede is one of the largest urban parks in all of Europe. Wander the park's 130 km (80.7 mi) of trails and roads, suitable for hiking, driving, and even cycling. More than 640 hectares (1,581.4 acres) of protected land--at least twice the size of New York's Central Park--are dotted with thousands of trees, large expanses of marshland, gently flowing creeks, and a variety of memorials. The park offers more active fun, too, with horseback riding, playgrounds, mini golf, and the city's zoo. Grab a bite to eat at one of the restaurants sprinkled throughout the area; they serve a selection of cafe specialties with both indoor and outdoor seating.

  • A beautiful forest in the middle of the city. Here you can go for a wonderful walk, ride a bike or go to the numerous playgrounds with small children. Many neighborhoods can be reached by bike if you ride on the well-developed bike paths.

  • Almost every week we take a walk in the rush ride. It is the green lung of Hanover, runs through the whole city area and seems infinite for walkers. Oaks and beech trees make up the main tree population. Most areas are looked after by forestry, but some areas are left to their own devices. There are plenty of walking paths, and there are plenty of bike paths.
