In a HUGE forest in the middle of Hannove, a city of aroudb 600 K inhabitants, every minute is worth to take a deep breath. Every inch of this forest is a huge value, jogging, riding, walking whatever you do.

Nice city forest for running, cycling or taking your dog for a walk. I prefer the part behind the zoo because it is the most " wild" bit without all the logging going on in the more popular parts.
