Berlin Festival of Lights – Discover the capital city outdoors  

Every autumn, Berlin Festival of Lights takes place in Berlin: world-famous landmarks and buildings are illuminated with spectacularly staged light shows. This year the popular festival particularly invites you to have a stroll around and discover the districts of Berlin. This is to avoid too many people accumulating in one place at the same time. The concept for 2020 is also a fantastic opportunity to discover the capital off the beaten track (and for all those who aren’t able to travel, this year it’s even possible to experience the shows virtually!)

This year, the productions will take place from 11-20 September and can be admired in many new locations. In addition to the well-known landmarks such as Berlin Cathedral, the Brandenburg Gate, the Television Tower and the Victory Column, 13 railway stations, a number of federal ministries and the former 33-storey high Ku’damm Karree will also be aglow with light.
