Light festivals in Europe this winter

The coming months Europe’s major cities are illuminated with extraordinary light art. Installations from different light artists and lighting designers illuminate the streets of Lyon, Prague and Amsterdam and many more. The installations trigger to think about the role the light plays in our lives and the many ways light interacts with us and our (built) environment.

Below you’ll find a shortlist of light festivals in Europe for winter 2018-2019.
