The concept of Weihnachten im Tierpark

At Tierpark Berlin, Europe’s largest zoo, Weihnachten im Tierpark 2019 was launched as the Berlin’s second festive winter highlight, alongside the Christmas Garden in the Botanical Garden. Almost 100,000 visitors came to see the glittering park scenery last year and were enchanted by the colourful sound and light exhibits. After a great first year, the success story at Tierpark Berlin will continue in 2020 with completely new, impressive highlights. Every year from mid-November to the beginning of January, the roughly two-kilometre-long circular trail invites families, friends and couples to pause, walk and enjoy. Guests can photograph and marvel at over 30 unique light installations.

The Christmas Garden Deutschland GmbH

Weihnachten im Tierpark and all other Christmas Garden locations are in-house productions of Christmas Garden Deutschland GmbH (CGD). This company was founded in 2018 and belongs to the DEAG Group, Deutsche Entertainment AG. In order to transform the impressive parks, zoos and gardens into sparkling fairytale landscapes during the winter months, the Christmas Garden team works throughout the year to design new and creative lighting concepts and to realise them together with all partners.
