Berlin Festival of lights 2016
Friday marked the beginning of the Berlin Festival of Light, an annual event that takes place in the city and where various buildings and monuments become canvases for light art and 3d mapping projections. Every day from 7pm to 12am different buildings become part of this installation.
Last Saturday (if you follow me on Instagram you might have seen it) Le Berlin Boys and I took the U-Bahn to Alexanderplatz and begun our light tour through Under den Linden, stopping at the Museum Island, Humboldt University, Gendarmenmarkt and Brandembug Tor. I’ve never see so many people on the streets since the Lange Nacht der Museen (Long night of the museums) and given that we are starting to fell the chilly fall weather I was actually surprised to the amount to people.
For the next couple of days many of these buildings will remain as stops in the Festival, but if you are interested in a particular place, there are many events and monuments that will be part of the circuit on specific days, so make sure you check the website so you don’t miss out.
