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.

On April 24, the nationwide lockdown law ("emergency brake") takes effect in Berlin: cultural and leisure venues must remain closed from this date. Until April 24, museums and galleries may open under strict conditions. Customers must show a current negative corona test. 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 highlight of «Christmas in the Tierpark» is certainly the ice rink at the foot of the castle, where guests can skate along to Christmas music. A «poetic fire garden» and a wide range of culinary delights complete the Christmas experience days in the zoo.
