The Royal Gardens in Hanover Herrenhausen are considered to be one of the most beautiful garden parks in Europe. Originating back more than 300 years, they are an expression of garden art in its finest form. The Gardens were originally planned as a pleasure garden for the royal court, were laid down by the Electress Sophie from 1676-1714 and today cover an area of 135 hectares. She was once heard to say ‘The Garden is my life’.
A magical setting
This Garden is home and habitat to many rare plants and trees, the tender green rococo garden, the knotted renaissance flower beds, the historical Hedge Theatre adorned in green and gold, one of the highest fountains and one of the largest collections of orchids. All these features make the former summer residence of the Guelph a magical setting which conveys an authentic image of a royal lifestyle in former days.
