Christmas Garden Insel Mainau

Get aboard to experience a magical journey and let yourself be enchanted by Christmassy splendor at the Christmas Garden Berlin.

Visit us from 24 November 2021 to 09 January 2022, from 5.30 pm to 10 pm on Mainau Island.

Safely and Responsibly Organised

Open-air event ★ 2G ★ Comprehensive hygiene concept

This week, the starting signal is given for the opening of the altogether ten open-air Christmas Garden events in Germany. In the interest of everyone and due to current developments, all locations have switched to the 2G (vaccinated and convalescent) rule. With controlled admission, personalised ticketing, reduced capacities, one-way procedures on the creatively designed trails and admission every 30 minutes, the Christmas Garden is a safe open-air event concept.

In this way, crowding is avoided and spacing can be maintained very well on the extensive grounds. The hygiene concepts of the respective Corona protection ordinances of the federal states are of course implemented and in some states exceeded. We ask that tickets be purchased online in advance to support contactless entry. We run the event safely and responsibly and ask everyone for their understanding for the circumstances.

About the Christmas Garden Insel Mainau

As twilight falls, the magic begins

It won’t be gloomy and dark on Mainau Island this winter. The Christmas Garden brings – in fact and also literally – 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 Insel Mainau is a pre-Christmas paradise where friends, couples and the whole family can spend an evening in an idyllic and festive atmosphere. The Christmas Garden will take you on an almost two-kilometre-long circular walk across the flower island of Mainau with numerous glittering illuminations into a magical Christmas world.

In winter 2019, around 950,000 visitors came to this wintery, enchanting highlight in Berlin’s Botanical Garden, Pillnitz Palace & Park in Dresden, Wilhelma in Stuttgart and Münster’s Allwetterzoo. The Christmas Garden is now also coming to Mainau Island as a Christmas getaway. Those who want to end the magical winter walk in a cosy atmosphere can enjoy delicious hot food or drinks on the romantic circular walk or warm up by the crackling fire. A visit to the Christmas Garden is an experience that offers everything for adults and children that makes a winter outing special.

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 5.30 pm, you can show up for admission between 5.30 pm and 6 pm. Of course you can stay longer than 30 minutes at the Christmas Garden.

The last admission to the Christmas Garden Insel Mainau 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 10 pm onwards that the Christmas Garden will close.

The Christmas Garden Berlin is open from 24 November 2021 to 09 January 2022, from 5.30 pm to 10 pm. The Christmas Garden will be closed on the following days: 29, 30 November, 24 and 31 December 2021.

Personalised Ticketing and Re-personalisation of Tickets

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. Further information can be found here.
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.
