Herrenhäuser Gardens, Hannover, Germany
The beautiful Mansion Gardens was built between 1835 and 1841 as an idyllic landscape park. The Welfengarten with the “Monbrillant Palace” is now the seat of the University of Hanover.
The almost two-kilometer Herrenhausallee was built in 1726 as a link between the city and the castle. Four rows of lime trees form three adjacent paths, the middle one for coaches and equipment, one for riders and one for pedestrians. As a viewpoint at the western end of the avenue between 1817 and 1819 the library pavilion was built according to plans by the court architect Laves.
