Sat., 02 December until Sun., 07 January

Every year a festive mood is created in the wonderful Haus zum Kirschgarten, formerly a Stadtpalais (city palace). When it gets cold outside and you like being inside, Christmas is not far away. Fourteen fir trees are set up and lovingly decorated throughout the Haus zum Kirschgarten for the first Advent. The scent of firs, the glow of lights, the historical and modern tree decorations, and the magnificent premises transport visitors to another world, leave them amazed and in a festive mood. A visit is worthwhile for young and old, because in addition to the guided tours on offer, you can also discover many things by oneself. A small reading corner invites you to browse through Christmas and winter stories, and little squirrel figures are hidden throughout the house and on every tree—it is fun for the family to try to discover them all. On December 15, everyone is cordially invited to sing well-known Christmas carols together.
