Palace Herrenhausen

The cornerstone for Herrenhausen Palace in the Grosser Garten was laid as early as 1640. In the following centuries, the building was redesigned several times, including changes by Georg Laves. He was the architect who gave it its final, classicistic look. Destroyed during World War II, it was finally rebuilt according to the original plans in 2013. It houses the Museum Schloss Herrenhausen as well as a modern convention centre.

Hannover Schlösser & Gärten - Leineschloss

Hannover Leineschloss - Niedersächsischer Landtag c) Martin Kirchner Leine Palace (Parliament from Lower Saxony)

Construction of the original Leine Palace began in 1637. From 1714, King George I had its interior reconstructed, with magnificent decorations. After a fire, the north-west wing had to be rebuilt. Further constructional changes were made by Georg Laves between 1815 and 1835. Among other details, he added the classicistic portico, resembling the example at Carlton House palace in London. Today, the Leineschloss houses the Landtag – the state parliament of Lower Saxony, which is currently being renovated.

Schloss Marienburg / Marienburg Castle c) EAC GmbH Marienburg Castle

Like something out of a fairy-tale Marienburg Castle is perched on a hilltop near the town of Pattensen.

It was the last summer residence of the Guelph Kings of Hannover and can be seen from as far off as Calenberger Land. The splendid neo-gothic palace was built by King George V in the mid-19th century as a gift to his wife Mary. Guided tours offer a fascinating glimpse of life behind the scenes. In summer, the Castle is used as a venue for live music and plays. The old coach house and stables provide a special ambience for the restaurant.
Special highlight: For the first time an exhibition at Marienburg Castle which runs until December 23th 2015 allows to admire the Kingdom of Hanover’s Crown Jewels.

Palace of the Guelphs

The Palace of the Guelphs is today the main building of the University of Hannover. The palace is surrounded by the Welfengarden – a green oasis which is used by students and residents of the neighbouring quarter Nordstadt. In front of the palace the town’s landmark of Lower Saxony is placed – the Niedersachsenross (horse of Lower Saxony) which was designed by Friedrich Wolf.
