Great park to run in. Lots of bike and running paths, plus grassy meadows for sunbathing. There are playgrounds for kids, plus a lovely cafe near the music school.

Take a bicycle and the day off. Stop at two or three beer gardens. And experience Germany's most sustainable city.

The forest is absolutely huge. It is a perfect place to go running or biking or even for a walk. There are also a few nice bars/restaurants serving beer and bratwurst inside the forest.

I grew up near the Eilenriede and every time I get back to Hannover I stroll through that beautiful City Park! It's just as beautiful as Central Park in New York! I have so many found memories of the Eilenriede!!
