About Las Luces del Real Jardín Botánico

The Royal Botanical Garden of Madrid will open its doors every evening from November 19th to January 6th 2020 for a very special promenade. The sensation is perfect, as the Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid is transformed into Las Luces del Real Jardín Botánico for the first time this winter – a luminous fairytale landscape with Christmas light shows, impressively staged flora and imaginative illuminated figures. It became famous in England under the title “Christmas at Kew”. The Christmas Garden in Germany has been celebrating overwhelming success in the Botanical Garden Berlin, and also in the German metropolises Stuttgart and Dresden.

Families, friends and couples can spend an atmospheric and romantic evening on an approximately 1,5 kilometre long trail. Millions of small light points illuminate the dark season and immerse the traditional royal botanical garden in a magical sea of splendour! The Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid presents itself to its guests during seven pre-Christmas weeks after nightfall in a way that one has never experienced this jewel in the heart of Madrid before! Las Luces del Real Jardin Botanico offers the whole family a decelerated break from the hustle and bustle of Christmas and directs the attention to the contemplative in the most beautiful time of the year.
