What travellers from around the world are saying
Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto
A couple of years ago a very wealthy friend of mine, who owns an work of art by French artist Niki de St.-Phalle, told me included Hannover in a trip to Europe just to see Nikki's art in town. I had totally forgotten this until I came to Hannover and found out that Niki's works are all over the place. There are three Nanas in the Sculpture Mile downtown and an ancient grotto at the Herrenhauser Gardens was redone by Niki, who filled with her Nanas, a colorful Ganesha and a myriad of kaleidoscopic mirrors. Before her death, she donated her private collection to Hannover's Sprengel Museum, and will appear in the new wing due to open late in 2016.lue lisää »
3 Nanas of Hannover
This is one of three buxom, colourful Nanas on Leibnizufer that Niki de Saint Phalle sculpted for Hannover in 1974. Niki de Saint Phalle is the first and so far only woman to receive the Freedom of the City of Hannover and a friend of the town for thirty years. Initially met with intense public dislike , the 'buxom girls' are now proud mascots of the city and really stand out beautifully against the backdrop of the old medieval architectural style of the Aldstadt. Combine your trip to the Nanas with a visit to the Saturday fleamarket ( 9am - 4pm ) which is the oldest flea markets in Germany.lue lisää »
