Herrenhausen Gardens

Take a royal carriage ride

Select Language


Since 2017 you can take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage through the Georgengarten again.


Especially when the weather is fine, Hanover's royal garden opposite the university is a popular local recreation destination in the middle of the city. On the large lawns between shady bushes and trees, families sit with barbecues and picnic baskets, a few students kick football, others jog or sunbathe, inline skaters and cyclists roll along the asphalt paths through the park.

Sunday excursion in the fine English way

On sunny weekends, visitors also like to be driven through the well-kept Georgengarten, named after the English Guelph King George IV of Hanover, just like the high rulers once did. After the original operator ceased operation in 2015, a successor was found in 2017.

The carriage rides in the Georgengarten are always offered on Sundays in good weather:

  • Season start: Good Friday, 19 April 2019

  • Start/Meeting point: "Milchhäusen" next to the "Großer Garten"
  • Duration: approx. 30 minutes
  • Capacity: max. four adults
  • Cost: 20 Euro per trip

One to two carriages with two horses each are stationed at the "Milchhäuschen" on the date indicated. In case of bad weather, softened paths or possible weather changes the carriages do not drive. No registration is necessary, but especially in good weather waiting times should be planned.
