A wonderful staggeringly huge lake in the middle of this green city. We visited on a cold day, but lots to see nearby. Would have liked to try a boat trip, maybe next time.

I was lucky to find that two of my recent hotels in Hannover were right on the shore of this lake. It is a very large and scenic lake although so far I only saw it when frozen! There are plenty of walking places around...More

Yea ,, it was frozen. Amazing thing to see. Nice garden surrounding the lake also. It’s very cold but deserve to explore something new.

We went during the very busy and fun Machseefest in early August. It was a crowded and really fun festival, with LOTS of beer, music, and revelry. Really enjoyed it! Good access by public transit, too.

This place is behind the Rathaus and is well worth the visit. You totally forget you are in a bustling city.

There is always something going on in Maschsee. In all year seasons. If you are lucky in a very hard Winter, you can walk or skate over the lake! The jogging track is super cool and there are a lot of people the whole day...More

What a beautiful setting! Plenty of space to sit and enjoy coffee. Try the semi enclosed beach chairs that are popular on the Baltic coast. Launch's are available to explore the length of this man made lake or, perhaps try a kayak?
