About the Christmas Garden Münster

As twilight falls, the magic begins

In Münster there will be no darkness and gloominess during this winter. The Christmas Garden brings – actually and figuratively – light to the dark season and invites you to take your breath and indulge peacefully and calmly in the anticipation of Christmas. The Christmas Garden Münster is a pre-Christmas oasis in which friends, couples and the entire family can spend an evening in a moody and festive atmosphere. The Christmas Garden takes you on an approximately 2 km long circular trail through the tradition-steeped all-weather zoo with many glittery illuminations to a magical Christmas world.

Last year around 350,000 visitors enjoyed this wintry magic highlight in Berlin’s Botanic Garden, in the Schloss & Park Pillnitz in Dresden and the Wilhelma in Stuttgart. The Christmas Garden now also comes as a Christmas destination to the Allwetterzoo Münster. If you want to end the magic winter stroll cosily, you can either enjoy tasty hot dishes or beverages at the ice rink or along the romantic trail, warm yourself up at the crackling fire or skate on the wonderful large ice rink. The visit to the Christmas Garden is an experience which offers everything for adults and children that makes a joint winter excursion special.

Highlights at Christmas Garden

Many unique highlights and the matching musical accompaniment have been designed exclusively for the Christmas Garden 2019 and can only be experienced with us. Come to the “Jungle” in which the enchanted trails and the extraordinary vegetation are newly staged with subtly installed laser beams and dedicated, newly composed music. Or let yourself be enchanted by the “Field of Lights”: on a large meadow thousands of light points are animated to a perfectly attuned melody and give the illusion of a moving, glittery picture motif.

Tips for your visit

Book your tickets for the Christmas Garden Münster already in advance sales and save unnecessary queueing at the evening box office.
