About the Christmas Garden Koblenz

As twilight falls, the magic begins …

and accordingly, from November 19, 2020 to January 10, 2021, the fortress will be transformed into a luminous, mysterious backdrop and an impressive scenery. Unique light installations harmonize with individually composed worlds of sound. Millions of light points open up previously unknown perspectives on the monumental architecture of Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. The Christmas Garden Koblenz takes you on an approximately 2 km long circular route through the historical Ehrenbreitstein Fortress with numerous glittery illuminations into a magical Christmas world. The Christmas Garden invites you to take a deep breath and enjoy the anticipation of Christmas in peace and quiet. We ensure a quiet and relaxed stay for each of our guests.

Last winter, around 950,000 people visited the Christmas Garden in Münster, Berlin, Dresden, Stuttgart and Madrid. Now the event concept is also coming to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress in Koblenz 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, warm up by the crackling fire or take part in a winter ride on the nostalgic carousel. The trip with the cable car across the Rhine with a wonderful view of the Christmassy illuminated Koblenz rounds off the light experience impressively. Ideal for families, romantics, couples, friends and all those who are looking for an extraordinary and particularly atmospheric excursion at Christmas time.

Public Security and COVID-19 Hygiene Concept

Ticket Information and Return of Tickets

Children (under the age of 6) have free access to the Christmas Garden. The children receive, however, a free-of-charge ticket so that the precise number of visitors can be checked. 
In our online ticket shop you have the possibility to acquire print@home tickets. You can buy these until shortly before the event and take them along with you as a PDF on your mobile phone or as a printout. At the evening box office admission tickets may be acquired as well.
Please note that in the event of loss of the ticket, no replacement or additional printout will be possible. In the same way a return or exchange of tickets is not possible. In accordance with § 312g Para 2 Sentence 1 No. 9 BGB (German Civil Code) there is no right to revocation when acquiring tickets despite the basic existence of a distance selling transaction.

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. Be inspired 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. The “Glockenspiel” enchants you and lets you walk through a sparkling path with countless fairy lights and real, ringing Christmas bells. The ride on the nostalgic merry-go-round rounds off your Christmas walk in a special way, so young and old can be carried off into a unique winter world.

Tips for your visit

Book your tickets for the Christmas Garden Koblenz already in advance sales and save unnecessary queueing at the evening box office. To allow every visitor a moody strolling without hustle and bustle, admission is limited to a certain number of persons per 30 minutes. Experience has shown that the Christmas Garden Koblenz has a high number of visitors in particular during the weekends and in the time windows before 7.30 pm. We, therefore, recommend that you plan your visit during the week and slightly later in the evening. The Christmas Garden is an open-air event and winter evenings can be very cold. We therefore recommend weatherproof clothing and solid shoes. If necessary, bring along an umbrella as well.
