Castle and the Great Garden go back to a farmyard from 1638.
The originally baroque castle, which was built in several construction phases, was redesigned in the years 1819 to 1821 by the former court architect Georg Ludwig Friedrich Laves in the classical style. He served the Welf family as a summer castle.During the Second World War, the castle was bombed and destroyed in 1943. Only the grotto, the Great Cascade and the outside staircase of the castle, which was later moved to the Great Garden, were preserved. The bombed castle and its land were sold by the Welfenhaus to the city of Hannover after the war.Schloss Herrenhausen was rebuilt in 2012 as one of Europe's top-class venues. State-of-the-art event technology, exquisite cuisine from the kitchen and cellar as well as an event service experienced in all its facets and requirements make for a truly royal experience!
