The 29th edition of Lower Saxony’s biggest open-air festival sets international accents on this year’s event. From sushi by the lake to Caribbean delights up to Mexican, Spanish, Greek or Italian specialties – for 19 days one can enjoy dishes from all over the world and holiday feeling is offered for free!

So why longing for the distance? The restaurants, beer gardens and bars with creative catering concepts invite you to linger delightfully around the lake. Lounges right on the waterfront, cozy beer gardens and terraces with lake view spread holiday feeling. Free concert highlights, athletic activities on the water, dance nights under the open sky, a spectacular children’s program or small-scale performing arts and comedy guarantee a non-stop holiday feeling for young and old alike.

On the stages all around the lake numerous stars and (insider) tips from different countries can be found. However, the main attraction remains the Maschsee lake! During boat trips, relaxed cocktail evenings with a view over the water or while strolling along the lakeside promenade, the visitors can immerse in the Mediterranean ambiance and experience their personal highlight at the Maschsee Lake Festival 2014. Especially recommendable: From the Maschsee Skyliner, a 81-metre-high viewing platform, one has a marvelous view of the festival and all Hannover.

„To meet friends, to enjoy the summer evenings, to have fun and a great time – for all that, the Maschsee Lake Festival offers the right setting“, says Hans Christian Nolte, CEO of the Hannover Veranstaltungs GmbH (HVG), which organizes this event.

For those who would like to combine the Maschsee Lake Festival with a short break in Hannover, the Hannover Marketing and Tourismus GmbH (HMTG) has put together a suitable overnight package as well as a group special at a reduced rate. Further information can be found under
