Japanese Garden Kaiserslautern

Enjoy the Far Eastern atmosphere in the largest Japanese Garden in Europe.

With the SWKcard, you will once again get discounted tickets to the two Kaiserslautern gardens “Japanese Garden” and “Garden Fair Kaiserslautern” in the 2021 season.

Season ticket for both Gardens

The SWKcard holder* can purchase a 2021 season ticket for both Kaiserslautern Gardens for a one-time fee of  27 €. This season ticket is valid for the SWKcard holder* and one adult, plus their own children (up to 18 years of age) registered in the same household as the card holder.

Start of advance ticket sales

From 15 March 2021, advance sales of season tickets with the 2021 SWKcard will start both at the Japanese Garden and at the Garden Fair shop.

If you purchase a season ticket with your SWKcard by 26 March 2021, you will save yourselves long waiting times after the Gardens open and will get a beverage voucher (redeemable until 31 August 2021) at the ticket booth as a thank-you for buying your ticket early.

Opening hours of the Japanese Garden from 15 to 26 March 2021 for purchasing a season ticket with the SWKcard:

Mon – Fri from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Please refer to the latest information from the Japanese Garden.

Additional card

The SWKcard holder* can purchase an additional card as a 2021 season ticket for the two Kaiserslautern Gardens at the Garden Fair. It costs a one-time fee of 27 € and is only valid for persons (max. 2 adults and their own children up to 18 years of age) who can prove that they are registered in the SWKcard holder’s* household. Proof of this must be provided when this additional card is purchased by presenting the ID cards and the SWKcard 2021 season ticket.

SWK guest ticket

The holder of a season ticket purchased with an SWKcard can purchase day tickets for their guests at special rates, for both the Japanese Garden and the Garden Fair. The prerequisite for purchasing such guest tickets is the presentation of the SWKcard 2021 season ticket by the SWKcard holder*.
