Festival of Lights

For ten days, the Festival of Lights transforms Berlin’s landmarks and historical monuments such as Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral and the radio tower through light projections and video art. Many local and international lighting artists use this unique opportunity to project their temporary works of art onto some of the most recognisable buildings in the world and leave a lasting impression on the spectators.

Special events during the Festival of Lights

The Festival of Light includes various art and music events as well as a tour offer called LightSeeing: Visitors can tour the highlights of the festival by bus, boat or, of course, on foot. Photography workshops, open house at selected buildings and charity events are part of the festival too. The full programme is available at the Festival of Lights website.

Opening Hours: 9th - 18th of October 2015
Useful hints: Various monuments and sights throughout Berlin are illuminated, but mainly in the city centre.
