The Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen is one of the most important baroque gardens in Europe, captivating tourists from all over the world. The main attraction here is the recently rebuilt Herrenhausen Palace, home to the new Herrenhausen Palace Museum. The Garden itself presents a dazzling array of romantic fountains, exotic plants and striking sculptures. Events such as the international fireworks competition and the Small Festival in the Great Garden regularly attract large numbers of visitors.
The Great Garden is a place to lose oneself in, to marvel at the magnificent Great Fountain, which is 82m high - if the weather is good (the largest of its type in Europe).
