Adding more merriment to the Hilton Beijing Christmas, the famous "Hilton Beijing Christmas Train" will make its stop for the third year!

Located in the center of the grand lobby, the festive display which was built by international team of engineers and artists will cover a 65 square meter winter landscape filled with cobble stone roads, cars, cozy homes, cafes, busy shops and town folks going about their daily holiday lives while model trains busily wind their way through the mountain and village tracks.

This year for the first time, the Hilton Beijing Christmas Train and tree lights will be powered by solar energy, with solar panels provided by U-Tron and dedicated to the world-renowned primatologist, conservationist and UN Messenger of Peace, Dr. Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots Environmental Education Program in China.
