The Festival of Lights is one of the largest illumination festivals in the world. Every year for twelve days in October, Berlin’s world-famous landmarks and monuments are dressed in spectacular light. German and international artists and lighting designers present extraordinary illuminations, light art and creative designs. The festival is accompanied by numerous cultural events, all exploring the theme “Light”. The festival is an admission-free, top artistic event for an audience of millions. It generates massive media interest worldwide, and as a result, promises real sustainability.
The festival is organized by Zander & Partner Event-Marketing GmbH, with Director Birgit Zander as the driving force behind it. In cooperation with the “City Stiftung Berlin” and lighting designer Andreas Boehlke, she was already laying the foundation for this successful public event back in 2005.
Numerous celebrities, businesses, institutions and artists are committed to the continual development of the festival. It is only through the involvement of all these people that enables us to transform the entire city into a huge exhibition space with international appeal.
