Lights of Freedom: October 11th – 20th, 2019
In October 2019 our big anniversary festival will take place: 15 years of FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS in Berlin!
The motto: Lights of Freedom. Also because of the occasion of the “30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall” in 2019, our festival makes FREEDOM the guiding theme! We stage famous landmarks, buildings and squares of Berlin, from the Brandenburg Gate to the TV Tower. In addition many other buildings and squares of the city will be illuminated. For 10 nights, the capital will become the largest open air gallery in the world! We look forward seeing you!
This was Festival of Lights 2018:
Premiere: Walk of Light!
For the first time ever the Festival of Lights presented two walking routes, the “Walk of Light”, on which all the illuminations and art works could be explored. To ensure that no light art installation was missed! Route in blue (4,1 km) and route in pink (2,15 km).
Another route is going to the “Europa im Licht” (Europe in light) locations (dark blue, 6,6 km). Also we are recommending discovering the City West. You could enjoy “Festival of Lights XXL” when you visited all illuminations and locations 🙂 These larger light route could be explored best with the Lightliner or one of the other beautiful LightSeeing tours. Here you can download the illumination map and the program.
We are presenting here the illuminations of the Festival of Lights 2018 in the following overview. We were presenting 150 different art works on 60 locations. We had 66 artists from 25 countries! All landmarks and buildings were shining if not marked with artistic projections which tell stories and present themes. Video Mappings including length were highlighted. Here you can download the illumination map and the program.
