As if Berlin’s buildings and landmarks were not spectacular enough, the Festival of Lights illuminates them in magnificent displays of colour and light. Contributed by local and international artists, the festival will also include a number of cultural events focused around the theme of ‘light’. The festival’s Light Bar will be serving their mysterious ‘LightCocktails’, providing a unique dose of synaesthesia. For more athletic guests, there will be a ‘LightRun’, in which participants can choose either a 5km or 10km jog through the breathtakingly brightened boulevards.
