One of the best places you can visit in this city of hannover. The access is fairly convenient from the city centre via tram. The entry price is 8 euros which includes full access or the a) gardens b) small museum and c) botanical gardens across the street (where the sea life is). So I would recommend visiting all 3 places. You can easily spend 2-3 hours even if you are just skimming through it. It’s peaceful, photogenic and serene place for sure.
Great place for photo sessions, relaxing walks or botanical documentation. The flowers are really pretty, even at the end of August. I recommend going there when it isn't very hot outside so you can make most of your visit.
