Full description
The Pillnitz Palace and Park will open its gates from November 14, 2019 to January 5, 2020 for a very special walk in the Christmas Garden. The park is transformed into an illuminated fairy-tale setting with breath-taking plays of light, impressively staged architecture, and illuminated characters. 

As opposed to the general hustle and bustle during the Christmas period, the Christmas Garden invites you to take a break and enjoy the true thrill of anticipation of Christmas Eve. Families, friends, and romanticists can spend a wonderful and contemplative evening in an enchanted setting full of discoveries. On a two kilometer long trail, pass by twenty individual light installations, embedded into the diverse nature of the palace park with a unique Christmas atmosphere.

The unique setting of the park provides the most beautiful motifs including the Lustgarten (Pleasance), the Chinese pond, and the English garden. The glasshouse of the legendary more than 230 years old camellia will likewise shine in a magical Christmas splendour. Elaborately designed festive motives narrate stories of reindeers, angels, and Santa Claus.
