Georgengarten and Street Art in Hannover

Walking through Hannover on our way to the Herrenhausen Gardens and Palace, we find ourselves walking down a street of fabulous sculptures (Brühlstrasse) along the banks of the River Leine.

Soon we reach the Georgengarten containing the Herrenhausen Allee, a 1.85 km (1.1 mile) road built in 1726 through the gardens to connect the city with the royal palace.

Half-way along the allee, the buildings of the Leibniz University Hannover look out on the park, with a tram stop right at the main entrance.

Strolling up the Herrenhausen Allee through the park, we get great views of meadows, lakes, canals, and plantings of the Georgengarten, now part of the Herrenhausen Gardens located at the far end.
