Responsible and sustainable

The great demand last year, with a total of around 1.9 million visitors:inside at the Christmas Garden Deutschland GmbH events in Germany and in Europe, showed how much people enjoy the luminous color magic and atmospheric light art of these events. We have done a great deal to reduce the energy consumption of the events as much as possible so that this special event can take place even in the face of the energy crisis and at the same time maintain the first-class quality of the lighting design.

Central points of our sustainability concept

Energy consumption

Every Christmas Garden is individual, and the power consumption varies accordingly. The average energy consumption for the lighting installations is roughly equivalent to the amount of electricity needed to start up a standard coffee filter machine once, or to iron for 16 minutes, for example.

Electricity savings

The lighting design as well as the pathway lighting consist of 90 percent LEDs, which results in an 80 percent energy saving compared to conventional light sources. As a matter of principle, the lowest necessary wattage is selected for the application. In addition, the traditional natural ice rinks, which are very popular with the public, were not included. The lighting of the circuit is reduced to a safety-relevant minimum. In addition, we have optimized our work processes so that it now only takes 30 minutes to ramp up the lighting installations.


From the catering partners to the wood suppliers for the fire bowls to the means of transport for the employees - a large part of all energy-relevant aspects could be optimized in terms of sustainability. This includes transportation with e-golf carts, the use of mulled wine dispensers with continuous flow heaters, the largely compostable packaging of the food, and the deposit system for glasses and cups with an on-site dishwashing service. The electricity used is predominantly sourced as green electricity from sustainable energy sources and there is no use of generators.


We - the team of Christmas Garden Deutschland GmbH - have not only continuously improved the energy-conscious concept in the past, but have also adapted it more intensively, especially for the current event season. Our goal is still to implement the Christmas Garden as resource-friendly as possible. Therefore, we are continuously working on the further development and optimization of our sustainability concept.
