Maschsee Lake Festival


Festivals & Seasonal Events

Maschsee Lake Festival 2016

Summer, sun and a seaside atmosphere: Mediterranean pleasures around the blue heart of Hannover from 27 July until 14 August 2016.

Music and Entertainment Programmes

Even during the day, the mood by the Maschsee Lake is fantastic. But as darkness falls, and the colourful lights of the booths and stages are reflected in the water, things really take off. A spectacular programme of music and entertainment is presented on a number of stages along the shores of the lake, turning the promenade into an atmospheric open air arena.

Gigantic Party

For three weeks every summer, a ginormous party takes place on the promenades around the shores of the Maschsee Lake. Every year since 1986, the people of Hannover have been joined by guests from far away for a gigantic party. With some two million visitors, the Maschsee Lake Festival is one of northern Germany’s biggest open air partys. Right on the banks of the lake, a number of stages offer programmes for every age and every taste.

Mediterranean Atmosphere

Along the palm-lined lakeside boulevard a successful blend of live music, performance artistry and delicious things to eat and drink is on offer – come and immerse yourself in this dream Mediterranean atmosphere and enjoy a feeling of relaxation and being on holiday.

Culinary Delights

From the culinary point of view, the Maschsee Lake Festival can offer the most exquisite of specialities. And there is a colourful programme of activities specially designed for the younger guests: At the weekends, fun and games of the liveliest kinds will lure them to the newly redesigned Children’s Meadow. Come and experience all this at one of northern Germany’s top summer events!
