The Winter Garden is ready for Christmas. This Helsinki attraction provides warmth and splendor for people from near and afar. Santa’s Little Helpers at the garden have prepared a Christmas oasis that is sure to delight families and people of all ages. Christmas decorations are displayed throughout the Christmas season until after Epiphany, to close on 8 January.
There is a Christmas tree and candles, Santa’s Little Helpers and animals of the forest. Santa’s Little Helpers perform tricks that will bring joy to all visitors. The garden’s biggest Christmas plant is a Camellia tree, which is about to bloom. The final touch to the Christmas spirit is given by poinsettias, hyacinths, amaryllis, cacti that are at their best in November and December, and Christmas arrangements.
Santa’s Little Helpers can be imagined to roam in the garden making their plans for Christmas Eve. The Christmas spirit is also created by the light of large white candles and the Christmas tree as well as by Christmas-inspired flower arrangements.
The Christmas time is the Winter Garden’s high season, only equalled by Easter. The garden is one of the favourites of day care centres, families, school children and grown-ups alike – and for a reason, as the garden allows visitors to enjoy the spirit of old-time Christmas. The garden café serves sweet buns and glögg mulled wine during the holidays.
