The Christmas Garden

After the last years resounding success, when streams of visitors immersed themselves for the first time into the magic glittering Christmas world of the Christmas Garden Berlin, the journey now continues. The Botanic Garden opens its gates again to take the visitors on a tour of uniquely designed wintry magic.

Your compass for the magical journey

On a around two kilometers long trail you pass by 30 individual light installations, integrated into the diverse nature of the Garden and marked by a unique christmassy charm.

Shining in new lustre

The Botanic Garden is a shining dream forest in a festive garment. Under the glittering 100-year-old weeping beech, on the Bridge of Wishes or looking at the shimmering snowflake pond – 30 highlights invite you to reflect and spend valuable time with your loved ones.

Contemplativeness on a large scale

Elaborately designed festive motifs narrate stories of reindeers, angels or Santa Claus and do not only make children’s eyes shine.

Culinary delights and fireplaces

As a cosy conclusion of the walk, great relaxation is possible whilst enjoying regional culinary delights and a cup of punch at quaint fireplaces.

Fun for everyone

If you like more action, you can rent ice skates and do a couple of laps on the ice rink especially built for the Christmas Garden or simply admire the idyllic light extravaganza from the ice. Hint: Of course you can also bring your owe ice skates!

Impressions from the premiere year …

Last year the Christmas Garden invited its audience for the first time to the magically illuminated woods of the Botanic Garden.

With access times on an hourly basis it was possible to offer every single visitor a contemplative walk without any hustle or bustle through the sparkling gardens and their playful motifs.
