Maschsee, Hannover

4.5
Maschsee, an artificial, 78 hectare (193 acre) lake, provides a picturesque setting for walking, bicycling, or skating on the 6 km (3.7 mi) of pathways around its banks. Look for some of the notable works of art on the northern side of the lake, such as the 6 m (19.7 ft)steel sculpture "Hellebardier" by Alexander Calder. You can also try your hand at several waters sports, such as sailing, rowing, windsurfing, and swimming. Stop for a German beer at one of the lakeside restaurants. Maschsee is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Hannover Edition.

  • Not only if Maschsee is well worth a visit. A quiet walk around the Lake is always nice. For visitors of the Landeshaupstadt a must!

  • Lovely outdoor experience. Good for running around the lake. Or jus getting the boat ride.🤗
  • I went there for the Machseefest. It is absolutely a must. The location is really nice and the fest as well.
  • Excellent place
  • I have never thought a man-made pond is this huge. Its located in the middle of the city. The boating is good here, more space to ride. One can enjoy boating if it is with a motor. Winters cab be with ice scatting. The pond has large fishes almost 5 feet long. The birds are also nice. The long walk around the pond is also fun filled. Maschsee fests are also quite enjoyable. Great spot for family and work outings.
  • Fantastic walk on a cold day a feast for the eyes
