Tierpark Berlin

What is Weihnachten im Tierpark?

Weihnachten im Tierpark offers unique photo backdrops, playful interaction, romantic settings and a tranquil Christmas atmosphere. After a walk along the illuminated circular trail, you can warm up by a crackling fire, enjoy winter specialities and relax with a view of the magnificently illuminated backdrop of the historic Friedrichsfelde Palace. Here, friends and families can experience a fairytale evening during Advent and be transported to a heavenly Christmas atmosphere by thousands of lights.

The illuminated highlight at Tierpark Berlin

Only when the darkest time of the year has come do the twinkling illuminations of the circular trail light up Europe's largest zoo once more. This winter, the romantic walk takes a different route with entirely new light installations that will continue to surprise even visitors from previous years. Artistic projections and millions of lamps bathe the historic Friedrichsfelde Palace in magnificent sheets of light, creating a unique atmosphere with the magic of a thousand twinkling stars in East Berlin.

Popular classics and shimmering novelties!

In winter 2022, Weihnachten im Tierpark is something to look forward to, presenting the most popular classics from its first two years such as the huge, dazzling "Field of Lights", or the mystical "Laser Jungle" alongside completely new highlights. In the atmospherically illuminated Tierpark Berlin, visitors can discover many surprising new light installations this year. Guests can expect a colorful festival of the illuminated arts. Anyone who wants to capture these special moments with a camera or smartphone is invited to share snapshots under the hashtag #weihnachtenimtierpark.
