About Las luces del Botánico

As twilight falls, the magic begins …

Under this motto Jardín Botánico – Histórico La Concepción in Málaga will open its doors every evening from 27 November 2021 to 09 January 2022 for a very special walk. The sensation is perfect: because Jardín Botánico – Histórico La Concepción will be transformed in this winter for the first time into Las luces del Botánico – an illuminated fairy-tale scenario with Christmassy plays of light, impressively staged architecture and fanciful illuminations. The Christmas Garden has already celebrated overwhelming success in Germany in the Botanic Garden Berlin since 2016, followed by the German cities Stuttgart, Dresden and Münster. In 2021, more magic new Christmas Garden locations will open up and spread their sparkling lights in Germany, England and Spain.

On an approximately 2,2 kilometres long trail, families, friends and couples can spend a romantic and enjoyable evening. Millions of points of light will light up the darkest season of the year and transform one of the most beautiful and important tropical gardens in Spain into a magical ocean of splendour. For seven weeks of festivities, as night falls, the Jardín Botánico – Histórico La Concepción will present itself to visitors in a way that this jewel of Málaga has never experienced before. Las luces del Botánico offers a decelerated break, away from the Christmas hustle and bustle, for the entire family and focuses on the contemplative aspects of the most festive period of the year.
A visit to Las luces del Botánico is an experience that offers both adults and children everything that makes a winter excursion together special.
