Europe’s biggest urb­an forest

Europe’s biggest urban forest, almost twice the size as New York’s Central Park: Eilenriede is Hanover’s emerald in the heart of the city. With its paths, sledding hills, lawns for sunbathing, play areas, woodland study centre, artworks and restaurants, it attracts stressed residents to its fresh, clean forest air.
