Herrenhausen Palace

The Herrenhausen Palace beautifully combines a modern conference center with a baroque flair. It is surrounded by the royal gardens that are regarded as one of the most important and beautiful baroque parks in Europe. Visitors can stroll along between winding bosquettes, never-ending box hedges, cascading fountains and golden sculptures.

The Palace and the Gardens that served as the summer residence of the Electors of Brunswick-Lueneburg were in particular the life project of Electress Sophie (1630-1714). They received international renown when George Luis, duke of Brunswick and Lueneburg, also became King George I of Britain in a personal union that lasted from 1714 to 1837. In the 19th century the Herrenhausen gardens and the palace almost fell into oblivion. During the Second World War, Hanover was the target of massive missile attacks. Over 90% of the city was destroyed, including the Herrenhausen Palace. It has been rebuilt in recent years in its former splendor true to the neoclassical design and also hosts a museum.

Thus, the Palace now offers historic flair and modern facilities. It is equipped with a spacious auditorium, smaller conference rooms that will be used for panels, meeting rooms, as well as a gastronomic offer.
