Eilenriede, Hannover

(5/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Eilenriede as running track is very nice. The half marathon is varied, leads but unfortunately also on a few main roads, which is a little annoying. You must careful also to see none of the signpost. To achieve a total but very well and good.

  • The Eilenriede, for me the synonym for the green belt around the city of Hanover, is probably quite unique in Germany. What other city can most on the Julius-trip ring with the bike a (state capital) orbit city and doing 'the city' get only a few minutes to face? Just taking a break otherwise green, city forest, Park and water (incl. Leine and the lake Maschsee).
