16. FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS
One of the most famous and popular festivals in the world
Every year in October Berlin becomes the city of light art. The light productions on the world-famous landmarks, monuments, buildings and squares of the German capital make the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS one of the most popular light art festivals in the world. Together with national and international artists, the Festival of Lights Team transforms Berlin into one big shining stage – the whole of Berlin lights up! We tell stories, draw attention to what is hidden in the neighbourhoods, present cultures and arts, transport messages and themes. Magic moments in Berlin!
The Festival of Lights is under the patronage of the governing mayor: Michael Müller.
16. Berlin FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS
10 Nights. 100 Locations. 100.000 qm Art.
In October 2019, Berlin became the largest open air gallery in the world: The most important landmarks, buildings and squares shone in sensational projections, magical 3D video shows and impressive light installations around this year’s theme “Lights of Freedom”. On the occasion of the big event “30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall” we transformed the City of Freedom into a gigantic stage and told stories that move: expressive, emotional, amusing, surprising, unexpected. The Berlin Festival of Lights thus connects cultures and people all over the world and easily crosses borders and continents – because light speaks all languages.
