Marchese is a nice medium size lake with parks and walking paths all around so good place to exercise and relax after work. I saw some small sail boats and paddle boats available during warmer summer days and nice restaurants in some places to enjoy dinner by the water. A pleasant surprise when staying at Courtyard Hannover for first time

used to jog around this place when I was a teenager. Lovely, massive lake in the middle of Hannover, great in summer or winter.

We spent 2 hours in this place. We brought a little bit of bread to feed the ducks and swan. You can rent a boat if you like. And there is also love bridge where you can put your love lock The lake is quite big to explore, so please spare 1-2 hours and bring your umbrella just in case... More

I visited on a lovely autumns day, sadly only had time to walk a short way around Maschsee - quite beautiful. There is a pleasure boat doing trips (about an hour) which would have been perfect. Instead we had tea & cakes at the Courtyard on the North West corner.

Just a big big lake, but the view is so nice, that it's the best area for walking, jogging, cycling or even boating. It's very popular among locals!

I stayed just closed this beautiful lake by the club Aspria. Nice beach, nice walking and clear water although this was packed. I would recommend also for a quick snap aside.

Walking by the lake is so peaceful and calm that you don't feel like going home. It is my favourite spot in hannover.

Closed to the center of the city is this amazing lake. Paradise with blue and greens, the Maschsee Festival is just great, have to visit it once in your lifetime.
