City of Light
October is the best time to see Berlin in the new light. And that is in the truest sense of the word! One of the most popular festivals in the world, Festival of Lights invites all fans of light art to visit Berlin in autumn. 05-14 October 2018 the German capital becomes the city of light: numerous Berlin landmarks, streets and squares will be illuminated in a colorful way and staged with light. The motto of this year’s festival is “Berlin – Connecting Cultures”. And the Festival of Lights 2018 will be as colorful and multifaceted as the cultural landscape of the capital is.
