Friends, lovers, families, and blissfully solitary promenaders will adore this “Christmas Garden” that, year after year, has been casting its spell in Kew (“Christmas at Kew”), London. Also in Berlin, Sttutgart, and Dresden. It surely will do the same here in Madrid where the event will take place for the first time. An enchanting event in a natural landscape — the Real Jardin Botanico de Madrid/Royal Botanic Garden — thereby intensifying the magic!
Incidentally, the elegant Royal Garden was created in 1755 by King Ferdinand VI. It has more than 5000 species of live plants. It lends itself beautifully to “Christmas Garden”.
Locally, the event is called “Las Luces del Real Jardín Botánico – Christmas Garden.” It’s Christmas fairy tale all the way. Christmas lights and special light effects will heighten the beauty of the magical spots that the Real Jardin is so rich with.
The after-dark trail is 1.5 km long, lit up by countless led bulbs in amazing sizes, shapes and colors. Duration: approx. 1 hour.
Inauguration: Tuesday, 19 November. FREE entry! So take advantage. But HURRY! With unprecedented success, more than 10,000 tickets have been sold in just a week in advanced sale! That’s how popular this Christmas Garden is set to be and there’ll be crowds at the entrance for the free tickets.
