Shining in Berlin

By Linda Tancs

For 10 days each September the city of Berlin, Germany, becomes an artist’s canvas during the Festival of Lights. That’s when local and international light artists transform the monuments, buildings, streets, quarters and squares into massive art installations through light projections and video art. Participating landmarks, as you might expect, include Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral and the Funkturm. Most structures are illuminated daily from 7 p.m. until midnight. A guided tour goes by the name LightSeeing. The festival can also be easily explored by bus, boat, bike taxi, limousine or carriage. This year’s event runs from September 17 – 26.
