About Christmas Garden Dresden

As twilight falls, the magic begins …

It is the most beautiful time of the year, when the sparkling evening round walk of Dresden’s famous Schloss & Park Pillnitz finally lights up again. Now already in its third year, the winter walk takes a new magical route with completely different worlds of light, which continue to surprise even our visitors from previous years. Discover with your family and friends a winter oasis in a romantic and evocative atmosphere. Enjoy the Christmas season and round off your visit with a hot mulled wine and seasonal delicacies.

Since its opening in 2018, the Christmas Garden Dresden has developed into one of the most popular destinations during the Christmas season. Last year, more than 950,000 visitors in Germany and Spain were put in the Christmas mood by more than 10 million light points. This year, Schloss & Park Pillnitz will again be transformed into a magical winter fairytale world on an approximately two-kilometre-long circular route. The unique architecture of Schloss & Park Pillnitz offers the most beautiful backdrop. Anyone with a passion for architecture, nature and contemporary light art will find what they are looking for at Christmas Garden Dresden.

Personalised Ticketing / Re-personalisation of Tickets

In order to be able to trace possible chains of infection, we as promoters are obliged to record your name and contact details. We use computer-controlled, personalised ticketing. In doing so, we observe both the relevant requirements of the authorities and the data protection regulations in accordance with the DSGVO. Children’s tickets must also be personalised and must contain all the necessary information. Only a personalised ticket then authorises you to enter. We ask you to present the purchased tickets and a photo document (identity card, driving licence, etc.) at the entrance.

If you are unable to attend on the day of the event, you can change your print@home or mobile ticket in your booking account at myticket.de. The re-personalisation will be done online. Further information can be found here.
If the ticket was sent to you by post, it will be re-personalised on site at the box office. There, you or the new visitor in question would enter the previous ticket and all the above-mentioned details of the new ticket holder. You can find the form here.

Highlights at Christmas Garden

Many new, unique highlights with suitable musical accompaniment and individual compositions were designed exclusively for the Christmas Garden 2020 and can only be experienced here. Let the “Glockenspiel” enchant you – take a walk along a sparkling path with countless fairy lights and real, ringing Christmas bells. The “water fairy tale” inspires with a light work of art made of water mist and a video projection and lets imaginative, shining motives develop on an impressive water wall. Also our visitors’ favourite from 2019, the “Field of Lights” is back again – on a large meadow thousands of light points are animated to a perfectly coordinated melody and thus create the illusion of a moving, shimmering picture motif. An audio-visual feast for the eyes that would certainly have impressed August the Strong.
