Each handcrafted light installation has been carefully designed to reflect the botanical garden’s unique themes and atmospheres, enchanting visitors of all ages.

Food & Beverage

There is a food and beverage area in LUMAGICA Park where you can get drinks and snacks.

Good to know

Good footwear is an advantage. You can expect a difference in altitude of approx. 100 meters. But don’t worry if you’re not good on your feet. Even if you are dependent on a walking aid, you can still enjoy the gardens.

How long is the circular route?

The circular route (not guided) is a one-way system and is approx. 1.3 km long. Depending on the time spent and breaks, it takes about 1.5 hours.

There are signposted toilets along the way.

Are dogs allowed?

Dogs may be man’s best friend, but they are not the best friends of tender sprouting plants. Our four-legged friends have a slightly different idea of the perfect use of a garden. What’s more, some plants are poisonous. That’s why dogs and other pets are not allowed in.


The park is wheelchair and baby carriage accessible.

I have lost something in the park. What can I do?
