Under the motto “Colours of Life”, the 19th FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS invited you to take walks in the historic city centre as well as in many of Berlin’s neighbourhoods. Included were the well-known main sites such as the Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin TV Tower, the Berlin Cathedral, Bebelplatz and many other landmarks, buildings, streets, bridges and squares. Our guests enjoyed a luminous programme of diversity!

The 19th FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS took place from 06-15 October 2023. Here you will find an overview of all the illuminations, locations, artists, partners and the accompanying programme.


The FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS 2023 was under the patronage of the governing mayor of Berlin, Kai Wegner.
