Beautiful Baroque Gardens
Gorgeous Baroque Gardens laid out by Sophia Duchess and Electress of Hannover in the 17th C.
Baroque splendour in Lower Saxony
Over 700 years of history in this lovely Palace but it's the Baroque splendour that I loved. Also Courtly Horse Riding displays, huge Mausoleum and very attractive grounds, which are free to walk round
Beautiful historic palace
This lovely palace is home to Hanoverian ducal family with strong connections to British royal family. Fascinating inside and out.
A Taste of Europe Through A Theme Park
Often described as the "Disney World" of Germany, this phrase sells the Europa Park short. Yes, there's a furry mouse and plenty of rollercoaster rides and sugary treats. But this is a vast theme park with glossy spas for grown ups, a Michelin-starred restaurant and a million things for children that takes them to Spain, Portugal, Russia, France, Italy, England and beyond (the far edge of the park heads to Boston and New England.) If you have children, make sure to stop off here.

Industrial History and Modern Art + UNESCO Status
You probably need a full day to make the most of this place - and some sturdy, sensible shoes! This former ironworks showcases the size and impersonal nature of the industrial revolution and its role through war and peace until its abrupt end in the 1970s. Today it functions as a science, history and art museum in one and changes its exhibitions frequently. Guaranteed to make you think.
