Hannover also plays a decisive role when it comes to lacrosse. The teams of the lacrosse club DHC Hannover e.V. play at the top of the German league and have a large number of national team players, so that we have many athletes who know what is important from the athletes' point of view when organizing such an event- We have also hosted the U19 Women's Lacrosse World Championships 2011 and gained a lot of valuable and positive experience - as players, supporters and spectators. Now we are ready for the next big international lacrosse event. And finally, our city also offers many opportunities for active and passive recreation. While some can actively switch off during exciting experiences, others can relax in the local recreation areas of the city: Hannover offers the city lake "Maschsee", the city forest "Eilenriede", the famous Herrenhausen Gardens as well as many green parks and oases in the middle of the city.
