Kolding Light Festival was held for the first time in December 2013 in the Danish city of Kolding. The date is set every year on the second weekend in December. It is a beautiful event that ushers in the upcoming Christmas season.

The idea of the festival is to give visitors a new and different perspective of the city of Kolding with light and sound. With exciting light sets, video mappings, interactive installations and light art, the city center is presented in a whole new light.

During the 2016 festival, FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Berlin sent its famous “Guardians of Time” to Kolding for the festivities.
