In Anticipation of the Festivities
Your Christmas celebration acquires a very personal note with a Christmas tree felled by yourself. Especially children are proud and happy when they return from their winterly adventure in our forest with their favorite tree. Because they know: it is not long to go before the longed-for Christmas celebration. Idyllic huts, from which Christmas delicacies for young and old are served, underline the spirit of Advent when felling your own Christmas tree at Schloss Wissen.
Discover and fell your own Christmas Tree
Our forest enterprise is located only a few minutes’ drive from Schloss Wissen. Free parking is available at Grootestr. 1 / corner Fasanenweg. From there, you follow a gravel forest road to the plantation area where you can fell your own Christmas tree up to a height of 2,50m. Furthermore, trees higher than 2,50m are also available and are felled daily in another area of the Schloss Wissen forest.
Parking is available in the forest:
Grootestr. 1/corner Fasanenweg, 47652 Weeze
If you wish, you can briefly store your Christmas tree (a name tag ensures that you retrieve your personal tree) while collecting and driving your vehicle to the pickup area, in order to load your tree. Or, you can opt to have your Christmas tree carried from the plantation to the checkout, or all the way to your car, by one of our young tree carriers for a small fee.
This campaign is independent of the weather. Sturdy footwear is an advantage! Please also note that the forest paths are not suitable for prams / buggies with small wheels. A saw will be provided or can be brought from home – chainsaws are not allowed.

only in the plantation to be felled by yourself
If you fell your Christmas tree at Schloss Wissen yourself, you will receive a freshly harvested tree of the highest quality. Several thousand Nordmann firs are planted by our forest enterprise every year and are lovingly taken care of for at least eight years until they have grown into splendid Christmas trees, making childrens’ eyes shine. But, not only does the appearance of the Nordmann fir provide joy: as it neither needles nor pricks, it is also particularly easy to take care of.
