You visit Hannover? Go maschsee! Really. The page is man made, it's the heart of Hannover and you can boat on it, if you like. Pick a sunny day and enjoy. Full pull.

This man made lake is a very nice place to chill and walk around. You can easily find a place to sit down and enjoy the nature... in the middle of the city! You can also rent a pedalo. However, I wouldn't like to swim...More
