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!
