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.

One of the very beautiful places in Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) state. I would highly recommend visiting it. The lake is surrounded by biking lane and suitable for both walking and jogging. Good for family activities. The lake is very beautiful the surrounding area is very green. It is an excellent place for relaxing. The connections are available.
Beautiful sight in Hannover city center. Highly recommended
