Golf Club Hanover e.V, is the oldest golf course in town. It is located in Hanover-Garbsen directly by the Blue Lake (Blauer See). The course has a standard of 71 on a length of 6155 meters for men and 5950 for women. The funny thing on this course, is that all players have to cross the A2 motorway on a small pedestrian bridge for the 3rd to the 8th hole. While playing the 18 holes, one doesn't hear any noise from the motorway. The course is closed on Mondays. Only guests with a handicap of 34 or better are allowed to play. Please call for open hours.
The AWD Arena is the new name for the Niedersachsenstadion, which was built in the year 1954. Down the decades, it has been renovated and reconstructed quite a few times to keep up with the growing demands of soccer spectators. This arena is one of the major soccer grounds in Germany and is also home to the Hannover 96 club. World Cup games have been played here in 1974 and in 2006. The stadium has been witness to some fine music shows too, with Rolling Stones being one of the most popular performers here.
This innovative establishment has been in Hanover since 1951, and was the first of its kind in Germany. Here young adults and children are given a place to express themselves through music, dance, and theater, or simply enjoy some free time. There are several music venues, theaters, studios and playgrounds that provide a comfortable atmosphere for a range of activities. For more information about upcoming event schedules, visit the website.

Herrenhäuser Gärten, which dates back to 1666 and the "reign" of Sophie of Hanover, is filled with a lush population of trees, hedges, flowers and more.

Time your visit right, and you might be able to enjoy one of the many festivals, fireworks displays and performances that take place here over the summer during the Herrenhausen Festival Weeks.
Hanover"s Eilenriede forest is virtually a "forest city" and its true "green lung". It covers an area of 650 hectares in the middle of the city, which makes it unique in the whole of Europe. Even the famous Hyde Park in London and the Bois de Boulogne in Paris cannot compete. Accordingly, the citizens of Hanover are very proud of "their" Eilenriede. The privilege to use and cultivate the Eilenriede as their possession, granted in 1371 by the dukes Wenzeslaus and Albrecht of Sachsen, is the foundation of its development. The forest stretches across the city, almost into the city center. It takes its name from the alder trees (German: Erlen or Ellern), which used to grow on its moist, marshy soil. The earlier "Ellernried" eventually became "Eilenriede". Nowadays, oak and beech trees are the most common. Pine, larch, alder, birch trees and other species also grow here in large numbers. The north and inner Eile nriede stretches between Kleefeld and List, while the south Eilenriede goes through Kirchrode as far as Waldheim.
The term "Zoological Garden" often used for "Tiergarten" is not quite appropriate in this case. The 112 hectares (277 acres) of this recreational forest are inhabited by a large number of wild animals, making it one of Hanover's most popular attractions. From the beginning it was not the production of wood, but the hunting and the beauty of the wild animals and the forest, that stood in the foreground. Thanks to this attitude a very old tree population developed, creating a scenery of rare beauty and serenity. The Tiergarten was created in 1678/79 by Duke Johann Friedrich for hunting. 120 fallow deer were set free in the forest. This is approximately the number living there today. Unfortunately, Duke Johann Friedrich could not enjoy the first hunt, organised in 1680. He died a year before, during a trip to Italy.
