On the 1st of May 2018 the town of Zwickau kicked of a very special week of celebrations, 900 years since the first documented mention of the city. The FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS as a central part of the week of festivities contributed extraordinary experiences.

A citys history presented and interpreted in public grounds in a completely new and engaging way. All guests and inhabitants of Zwickau will remember this jubilee fondly with the episodes from nine centuries, important historical figures or visual compositions: traveling through time on a light beam. Remembering the city and its history in a new and special way.

The week of festivities included tours, readings and concerts to round out a truly magnificent jubilee.
