Anticipation of Christmas

After its successful premiere in winter 2021, Christmas Garden Insel Mainau opens its doors again this year to bring light to the dark season. The Christmas Garden is a winter oasis where friends, colleagues, couples and the whole family can spend an evening in an atmospheric setting. The Christmas Garden takes you on a two-kilometre-long circular trail through the garden island of Mainau, with numerous glittering light installations transporting you to a magical Christmas world.

One of the most popular destinations

Already in its opening year, the Christmas Garden Insel Mainau developed into one of the most popular destinations in Baden-Württemberg during the Christmas season. This year, a romantic fairy-tale landscape will be created in the Christmas Garden Insel Mainau, which will also surprise our guests from last year again and again. A visit to the Christmas Garden Insel Mainau is an experience that offers everything for adults and children that makes a Christmas outing in nature special.
