Maschsee, Hannover

4.5
#1 of 11 in Nature in Lower Saxony
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.
