Festival of Lights for the 17th time in Berlin: September 3rd-12th, 2021

The Festival of Lights enchants Berlin again this year. For the 17th time, many interesting historical buildings, prominent streets and squares as well as interesting places in Berlin's recent history will be staged with light.

This year's festival motto "CREATING TOMORROW" addresses the responsibility for the sustainable preservation of our home planet. The light art installations and video mappings play with this topic in a wide variety. Stimulating visions will be shown and upcoming tasks will be addressed, such as sustainability, e-mobility, measures for more CO2 neutrality, renewable energies and digitization. All illuminations will take place at around 70 locations from 03.-12. September 2021 daily between 8:21 pm and midnight.
