Schloss Marienburg might tempt you to the south of the city. In the middle of the 19th century, King George V had this fairytale castle built and gave it to his wife Marie as proof of his love.

Half an hour's drive west of the state capital lies the Steinhuder Meer, Lower Saxony's largest inland waterway.
