Les trois Nanas sur la berge de la Leine.

Tourist Highlight


Buxom curves, luminous colours: the three Nanas on the Leibnizufer have become one of Hannover’s most popular landmarks since 1974.

They were not always so celebrated: many Hannoverians took a distinct dislike to the voluminous sculptures created by the artist Niki de Saint Phalle. This grass roots protest gave rise to intense debate about art in public spaces – with a happy end: Hannoverians now consider the Nanas to be part of the family. The artist was made an honorary citizen of Hannover in 2000. She expressed her gratitude by bequeathing 300 of her works to the Sprengel Museum Hannover.
