Luminous Gardens for the Festival of Lights

During the day, international garden art meets cultural and concert highlights, games, fun and relaxation in the gardens of the world. Go on a world tour, admire exotic flowers and plants from the cable car or from close up, enjoy music in the open air and relax – the gardens of the world are as varied as their visitors. With the Magical FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Garden, the gardens are the fascinating focal point even in the evening: the entire park is the setting for impressive illuminations and projections. Even from a distance, the Wolkenhain vantage point shines into the Berlin evening sky. A group of glowing penguins is waiting for the strollers right at the entrance.

The journey continues on atmospheric paths past illuminated trees into the world of nocturnal gardens. There is much to discover. For example, there are shining water lilies and boats floating on the waters of the park. Light art accompanies and tells the story of the individual gardens and garden cabinets: in the Chinese Garden, images of figures from Chinese history and mythology can be admired. When the wind moves the branches and leaves, one has the feeling that the trees are alive.

Even the little guests of the Magical FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Garden can look forward to special magical moments. For the whale fish and the sharks on the playground, the festival’s creatives have brought a lake of light with them and tell Erich Kästner’s story of “Konrad’s Journey to the South Seas” in a completely new way. Another highlight for young and old is the fairytale forest, where very special journeymen are guests in the evening hours.
