About Christmas Garden Hannover

As twilight falls, the magic begins …

It will not be dark and gloomy in Hannover this winter. The Christmas Garden brings – actually and figuratively – light into the dark season and invites you to take a deep breath and enjoy the anticipation of Christmas in peace and quiet. The Christmas Garden Hannover is a pre-Christmas oasis where friends, couples and the whole family can spend an evening in an atmospheric and festive atmosphere. The Christmas Garden takes you on an approximately 2 km long circular path through the adventure zoo with numerous glittery illuminations into a magical Christmas world.

In winter 2019, around 950,000 visitors came to this winterly, enchanting highlight in Berlin’s Botanical Gardens, Pillnitz Palace & Park in Dresden, the Wilhelma in Stuttgart, Münster’s all-weather zoo and the Royal Botanical Gardens in Madrid. The Christmas Garden is now also coming to Erlebnis-Zoo Hannover as a Christmas destination. Those who want to end the magical winter walk in a relaxed atmosphere can treat themselves to delicious hot food or drinks on the romantic circular path or warm up by the crackling fire. A visit to the Christmas Garden is an experience that offers adults and children everything that makes a winter excursion together special.

Personalised Ticketing

Contact tracking is still ensured. We use computerised, personalised ticketing so that the names and contact details of all visitors are available. The requirements of the authorities in this regard are observed as well as the data protection rules according to 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 to a different name in your booking account at myticket.de. The re-personalisation will be done online.
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 unique highlights and the appropriate musical accompaniment were designed exclusively for the Christmas Garden 2021 and can only be experienced here. Come with us to the “jungle”, where the enchanted paths and the extraordinary plant world are staged in a completely new way with discreetly set laser beams and specially composed music. Or be enchanted by the “Field of Lights”: on a large meadow, thousands of light points are animated to a perfectly coordinated melody, creating the illusion of a moving, shimmering image motif.
