The Christmas Garden Concept

Inspired by Christmas at Kew, Royal Botanic Gardens opened in 2016 for the first time in the Botanical Garden Berlin the Christmas Garden.
After two very successful years at the Berlin Botanic Garden, the opening of the locations Dresden, Münster, Stuttgart and Madrid followed in 2018 and 2019. We also opened the second location in Berlin under the name “Weihnachten im Tierpark”. Over 1.5 million visitors have already embarked on this extraordinary winter journey.
The concept of the Christmas Garden is unique in Germany and enchants its guests from mid-November to the beginning of January with constantly redesigned circular paths and diverse sound and light installations. The festive winter event format is constantly being expanded. In the coming years, further locations in Germany and abroad are planned.

Christmas Garden Deutschland GmbH

The Christmas Gardens of all German and foreign locations are in-house productions of Christmas Garden Deutschland GmbH (CGD). This company was founded in 2018 and belongs to the DEAG-Group, the Deutschen Entertainment AG.
In order to transform the impressive parks, zoos and gardens into sparkling winter landscapes during the winter months, the Christmas Garden team works throughout the year to design convincing and new creative concepts and to realise them together with all partners.

The Team

Ein Team von über 300 internen und externen Mitarbeitern sorgt für die jährlichen Verbesserungen, die Umsetzung und den Ausbau des Konzepts.
