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.

Last winter, 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.

FAQ

Admission Times

To allow for a relaxing experience, the admission of visitors per 30 minutes is limited. Please come during the admission time stated on your ticket and go through the entrance within the hour stated on your ticket. Example: If you have bought a ticket for 5 pm, you can show up for admission between 5 pm and 5.30 pm.

The last admission to the Christmas Garden Hannover and the last start on the trail is at 9 pm. We ask for your understanding that the security services will inform the visitors still on the trail from 9.45 pm onwards that the Christmas Garden will close at 10 pm.

Compulsory mask in sensitive areas

It is generally recommended to wear a mouth and nose protector on the Christmas Garden grounds. At neuralgic points, e.g. entrance and exit areas, sanitary facilities, catering, we point out out the wearing of the mouth and nose protector by appropriate signage. In these sub-areas the wearing of a mouth and nose protector is obligatory. This applies to both indoor and outdoor areas. Depending on current developments in the winter months and official regulations, we reserve the right to introduce a general obligation to wear a mouth and nose protector on the entire area of the event.

If you do not have a mouth and nose protector, you can purchase one on site. Scarves, cloths or other textiles are not sufficient.

Opening Hours

The Christmas Garden Hannover is open from 19 November 2020 to 10 January 2021, from 5 pm to 10 pm.

The Christmas Garden is closed on the following days: 23, 24, 30 November, 01, 24 and 31 December 2020.

Personalised Ticketing

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.
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 2020 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.
