About Christmas Garden Köln

As twilight falls, the magic begins …

It will not be dark and gloomy in Köln this winter. The Christmas Garden brings light into the dark season – both actually and figuratively – and invites you to take a deep breath and enjoy the anticipation of Christmas in peace and quiet. The Christmas Garden Köln 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 walk through the popular Kölner 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 Garden, Schloss & Park Pillnitz in Dresden, Münster’s all-weather zoo, the Wilhelma in Stuttgart and the Royal Botanical Garden in Madrid. The Christmas Garden is now also coming to the Kölner Zoo as a Christmas destination. Anyone who wants to end the magical winter walk in comfort can treat themselves to delicious hot food and drinks on the romantic circular path or take a winter ride on the nostalgic carousel.
