Weihnachtspark im Claraspital

For the 15th time, a walk-in installation that can be perceived with all the senses will be set up in the entire park of the Claraspital Basel before Christmas. The Christmas Park at the Claraspital has become a fixed point in Advent because it invites people to linger and contemplate during an often hectic time of year; because it encourages reflection; because it can be visited alone or with others. The elaborate exhibitions are new and different every year and are eagerly awaited by many people.

This year's Christmas Park "Encounters" will open with a ceremony and musical accompaniment at 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 26, 2021.
The Christmas Park is open to everyone from 27 November to 6 January, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day, at Claraspital Park, Kleinriehenstrasse 30, 4058 Basel


Motto "Encounters
The Christmas story is one of the most famous stories in the world and contains everything that makes a story exciting: the meeting of rich and poor, miracles and the arduous journey to get there, envy and jealousy, faith, hope and confidence. In two places in the New Testament the Christmas story is told: in the Gospel of Luke and in the Gospel of Matthew.


During the Christmas season, you will meet protagonists of the Christmas story in many places. Some of the characters, such as the innkeeper or the ox and donkey, were added to the biblical tradition at a later date, while others, such as Elizabeth or Simeon and Hannah, are unknown to many. This year's Christmas Park in the Claraspital is closely based on the biblical texts and is dedicated to the figures and characters surrounding the birth of Jesus: the generally known ones such as Mary, Joseph, the three kings, the shepherds and angels, but also the more unknown figures such as Elisabeth, Zacharias,
Simeon and Hannah. Who were they? What role do they have in this story?

This year's installation by interior designer Stephan Primus has created narrative spaces for each protagonist - based on the architecture of pagodas. Abstract content is thus translated into walk-through, three-dimensional spatial images. Push aside the veils and curtains and look forward to an encounter with the individual protagonists. In the Christmas park of the Claraspital we let them have their say (voices: Andreas Dörner, Simone Heusler, Trix Sonderegger). You can also read and listen to the texts and Bible quotations. We wish you a joyful Christmas season.
