During the festival, we will witness not only the most spectacular lighting shows, but also various cultural events that will take place around the theme “Light”, as well as an extensive charity program called the City Stiftung Berlin. During the 2013 version of this event, we expect to enjoy established activities as the Benefizkonzerte des World Doctors Orchestra (The Orchestra of the World Doctors Charity), which is an orchestra composed by doctors who support access to basic health services among the most deprived, the OpenCity, an event in which people are allowed to get into some of the most representative buildings of the city and, of course, the well known Jazz festival in den Ministergärten, at which through music and light, attendees will be able to experience the most artistic face of the city.

Many people, private companies, institutions and artists have contributed their bit to make the festival possible. Only with their significant contributions, it is possible to transform the German capital into a unique and charming city as the one presented at the Festival of Lights in Berlin. This event is a purely private initiative.

Everyone will have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful lighting shows from multiple points of the city, but for those who want to live a unique experience, I’d recommend to watch these shows from the water. As you already know, Berlin has numerous waterways (as it is crossed by two major rivers and several lakes), from which you can get amazing views of the shows. Of course you also have the option of walking through the main points of the city or get on the rooftop of a skyscraper in Berlin, that’s totally up to you.

Potsdamer Platz, Unter den Linden (the main avenue of the city center), Brandenburg Gate, the German Cathedral, the TV Tower and Tiergarten are some of the places that will take your breath away during the festival. So if you were looking for an excuse to come to Berlin, you´ve found the best of all, because during the Festival of Lights in Berlin, you’ll enjoy not only the charms of the night in one of the most beautiful and influential cities in Europe, but also the best lighting shows in Europe.

The Berlin Festival of Lights is an event you can enjoy with your whole family, because apart from the regular activities, you´ll find events designed to entertain children.
