Fodor's Review

The gardens of the former Hannoverian royal summer residence are the city's showpiece (the 17th-century palace was never rebuilt after wartime bombing). The baroque park is unmatched in Germany for its formal precision, with patterned walks, gardens, hedges, and chestnut trees framed by a placid moat. There is a fig garden with a collapsible shelter to protect it in winter and dining facilities behind a grotto. From Easter until October there are fireworks displays and

fountains play for a few hours daily (weekdays 10–noon and 3–5, weekends 10–noon and 2–5). Herrenhausen is outside the city, a short ride on Tramline 4 or 5.
