Hanover Golden Gate

Hanover Golden Gate


Eye-catcher from the 17th century

Numerous visitors marvel at the famous Golden Gate in the Herrenhausen Gardens every year. The gate dates back to the 17th century and is considered the landmark of the Baroque Great Garden. However, it was only moved to the threshold of the Oranges Parterre in 1938, where it now offers a view of the Neptune Fountain and the Gallery Building, which was built between 1694 and 1698 for Elector Ernst August and his wife, Electress Sophie, according to designs by the Electoral Palatine master builder Johann Peter Wachter. The ornate decoration with gold leaf makes the Golden Gate in the Great Garden in Hanover an eye-catcher and sought-after photo motif.
