    In the middle of the city and yet the perfect recreation area. The Maschsee invites you for swimming, water sports or leisurely strolling, cycling, inline skating or running. The artificially created, 80 hectares of water and its long beautiful promenade attract visitors from all over. You can also rent pedal boats or rowboats or learn how to sail. On the south bank of the Maschsee there is also a bathing beach for swimming. There is a lot to do here. One day is not enough.

    He is not tall. A circumnavigation is about 6.5 km long. If that is still too far, you can translate with scheduled scheduled service boats or make a sea cruise.
    The outer track around the lake consists of an asphalt lane, it is often used by cyclists and skaters. Inside is a footpath, here you can see many joggers and strolling strollers. So everyone gets to their pleasure without stress.

    Although the Segelböötchen are small, the lake exudes maritime flair. Is not only at the boot clubs, but also at the casino on the north shore. For me and my wife, the lake is regularly a destination for cycling from Hildesheim coming from.
    On the western shore, the sea is quite shady by many tall trees, the east bank is more like an avenue with less shade, but more benches in the sun.

    One of the most popular excursion destinations and recreational areas in the city: the Maschsee in the middle of the city attracts water sports enthusiasts just as he invites you to stroll, cycle or jog.

    Hannover relaxes on its maritime paradise: well known beyond the city limits and certainly one of Hannover's most popular destinations is the approx. 0.8 square kilometer Maschsee.
    The artificial lake, which was built between 1934 and 1936 in the Leinemasch, attracts water sports enthusiasts just as it does on its approx. 6 kilometers long riverside paths for strolling, cycling or jogging invites. In recent years, he has become more and more of a meeting place for inline skaters.

    As a destination for a bike ride from Hildesheim coming from always nice. Especially at the time of the annual Maschseefestes.

    The name of the lake is derived from the so-called "Leinemasch" or simply "Masch". This is the historical corridor name for the area where the lake was created. It is a lower-lying floodplain of the leash. The origin of the term Masch is related to the landscape type of the march (Wikipedia).

    Julius Trip (1857 - 1907) was the first city garden director of Hanover from 1897 to 1907. He established with his office an independent garden administration, which continues to this day. During his tenure, Julius Trip created numerous new gardens of various kinds. These included city squares, parks such as the Maschpark and the front Eilenriede, cemeteries, playgrounds and sports fields.

    THE lake of Hannover. Many leisure activities possible, nice restaurants on the shore. Made in the 1930s, partially excavated by hand with the spade. The Maschsee belonged to the job creation measures of the national socialists. And, like much of the time, served to dazzle ordinary citizens. Today Hannover is not Hannover without Maschsee.

    "The enthusiasm for nature comes from the uninhabitability of the cities." (Bertolt Brecht)

    One of the last remaining water holes in Hannover. The Maschsee is of great importance for the Hanoverian. Sometimes people reach the water for the first time in March, but in the summer months they are forced to divide into widely scattered groups, for example at the Maschsee Festival. So you will find instead of the large herd many small groups, partly scattered around the Maschsee around.
    And ... to keep the good water quality, every year huge amounts of garbage in the form of plastic bags and bicycles are taken out of the lake!

    It's best to make a real turn at the end and then drive back. Not that it will be a whole lap.

    Once around, are about 6.5 kilometers, in slalom past other people who do not hear one, because they have mobile phone in the ear or walk with the rollator and hear nothing more. 2400 would be if you would walk the entire route once over the water, but not back.
