Christmas in the Tierpark

17 November 2021 - 09 January 2022

Europe's largest zoo will be bathed in Christmas lights again this year with «Weihnachten im Tierpark» (Christmas in the Tierpark). The historical Friedrichsfelde Palace is at the heart of the luminous Christmas tour.

Cultural and leisure venues are currently only allowed to open under strict hygiene guidelines. Events are permitted in accordance with hygiene regulations. The 2G rule applies indoors. Further information »

After the «Christmas Garden» in the Botanical Garden in Dahlem, «Christmas in the Tierpark» is the capital's second large-scale light installation. Finally, the east of the city gets its light exhibition in the nature.

Visitors to the Tierpark in Friedrichsfelde can take a two-kilometre circular walk through the colourfully illuminated park at Christmas time. A total of 30 light sculptures will be on display. Illuminated treetops, shining stars along the way and light shows on the water lead the way to the festively illuminated Friedrichsfelde Palace. A «poetic fire garden» and a wide range of culinary delights complete the Christmas experience days in the zoo.

Corona rules at Christmas in the Tierpark 2021

Even in 2021, the Corona pandemic is not over. This is why Weihnachten in the Tierpark will be held under 2G conditions:

  • Visitors must either be fully vaccinated or be considered recovered.
  • Children under the age of 18 are allowed to attend if they have tested negative (no additional tests are required for schoolchildren due to regular school attendance tests).
  • People who can prove that they cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons may participate if they test negative by PCR test.
  • Children under the age of six do not need a test.
In addition, masks are compulsory on the entire grounds. Contact tracking is guaranteed by personalised tickets.
