Kestnergesellschaft

The Kestnergesellschaft in Hannover is one of Germany's biggest and best-known community art galleries.

The contemporary visual landscape, which includes not only fine arts but also architecture, fashion and design, is as central to the Kestnergesellschaft as current music and literature or the theoretical teachings of philosophy and the humanities. Through its exhibitions, accompanying catalogues and guided tours, the gallery presents contemporary art and theoretical movements with an exacting, dynamic approach and at an international level.

Opening times:

Friday-Wednesday & public holidays 11am-6pm, Thursday 11am-8pm

Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto

Niki the St.-Phalle at her best

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.

3 Nanas of Hannover

Hey Nana!

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.
