Trees of Historic Bethlehem FAQ

How do I take the Trees of Historic Bethlehem tour?

Start at the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts, then go to the Moravian Museum of Bethlehem. From there you will be able to visit the Single Sisters' House. Tours at these 3 sites are guided. Finish up at the 1810 Goundie House with the final Trees and some shopping!

Do I need to visit all the sites in one day?

No! You may visit HBMS sites any time during open hours through January 12, 2020. Please note that tours of Single Sisters' House leave from Moravian Museum of Bethlehem so you must check in there first.

Your Christmas City Combo Ticket grants you 1-day admission to Christkindlmarkt which can be used during their open hours between November 22-December 22, 2019 and does not have to be used in the same day you visit Trees of Historic Bethlehem.

Where do I park?

While most of our sites are located on city streets, street parking spaces are limited.  There are parking garages and metered parking located throughout Bethlehem on both the North and South sides.  For more information, please visit the Bethlehem Parking Authority website.

Trees of Historic Bethlehem Hours

"My sister and I took the tour last Friday and it was absolutely delightful!! The Bethlehem Garden Club's use of portraits, paintings and artifacts as inspiration to decorate the trees was amazing and so artistically done! The restored historic museums are the perfect setting and the tour guides did a wonderful job explaining the history of the Moravian community. We thoroughly enjoyed it...This is a must-see!!"
