Niki de Saint PhalleGrotte


The French artist Niki de Saint Phalle designed the "Old Cave" in the Royal Garden. Three colourful mirror rooms opened in 2003, which unfortunately the artist did not live to see. Thus, this was her last big project.

Niki de Saint Phalle is Hanover's only honorary citizen and felt strongly connected to the city. Her Nanas at the shore of the Leine even became one of the emblems of Hanover.
