About us

In 2004, the two initiators, Thomas Weisser, a local business owner, and Rainer Huber, a talented sound and light engineer,  had the brilliant idea to offer the many families, who spend Christmas together, a very special Christmas experience. The Christmas markets, a special attraction for the whole family, have folded up their tents before Christmas Eve. The initiators from Triberg have filled this festive void between Christmas and New Year by presenting the general public with a fantastic Christmas spectacle. They enchanted the famous frozen waterfalls of Triberg and the surrounding nature park with 100,000 lights in a Christmas sea of lights. With the number of lights the number of visitors grew from year to year: 500,000 lights attracted the sensational number of 47,000 visitors in the year 2008. Thus, the success of this Christmas events for the whole family can be seen by the high number of visitors since across the country and beyond national borders.

Meanwhile, 1,000,000 lights enchant the winter waterfall area. And some new attractions are added every year. Since two years, the "young" visitors of Christmas Magic enjoy their own Christmas magic world of children. And four days fantastic fireworks will culminate a Magical Christmas day in Triberg.

And thus the idea has been created

In 2003, at the initiative of the mayor of Triberg, Dr. Gallus Strobel,  the world-famous waterfalls were made accessible even in winter. In 2004, the city established a natural theme park in the direct neighborhood. This inspired Thomas Weisser and Rainer Huber to organize the "Triberg Christmas Magic". The success proved them right: Triberg and the whole region had another attraction, which complemented and strengthened the tourism offer, especially in times when usually fewer people visit the Black Forest town.

...and this is our winning formula

Many visitors are enchanted foremostly by the awe-inspiring atmosphere in which the Triberg waterfall and its surroundings are transformed through the beautiful Christmas lights, especially in the darkest season of the year. On the other hand , the attractive program variety of the "Triberg Christmas Magic" guarantees that the shows offer something for every musical taste, for young and old alike. The secret to the success of this special event is the professional blend of traditional and local traditions with modern entertainment. The Triberg Christmas Magic has become the magnet for the general public far beyond the region.
