The Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen is easily the most famous landmark in Hanover and also enjoys an international repute. This swathe of green comprises four unique gardens: the Great Garden (Großer Garten), the Berggarten, the Georgengarten and the Welfengarten. The symmetric, beautifully manicured Great Garden is the podium for events, festivals, firework competitions, concerts and theatrical performances, and it has a grotto dedicated to the last works of artist Niki de Saint Phalle. The baroque Berggarten, on the other hand, stands witness to 300 years of history. The Wilhelm Busch German Museum for Caricature and Critical Graphic Arts and the Leibniz Temple draw tourists to the Georgengarten. The gorgeous Welfenschloss (housing the University of Hanover) lies in the Welfengarten.
