The Festival of Lights has finally ended and during the last two weeks, I took a couple of pictures from Berlin’s most known Landmarks. Sadly, due to restoration works, the Victory Column wasn’t illuminated this year, but I got some nice shots from the Berliner Dom, Schloss Charlottenburg and the Brandenburger Tor.

Again in 2010 more than 60 buildings will be illuminated during this years Festival of Lights. Many landmarks and buildings – including the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral and the TV Tower – will be staged with light, events, projections and fireworks. The Potsdamer Platz will serve as the point of contact for visitors to get information about the locations and events of the Festival of Lights.
The Festival of Lights has become one of the most important international public events in Berlin. For nearly two weeks (From October 13th to October 24th 2010 from 7 pm to 12 am [core time]) , numerous illuminations and events transform the German capital into a sparkling metropolis, where Berlin’s world-famous landmarks, buildings and sites are the stars of the show.
From now on, you don’t have to travel all the way to Hollywood to see some stars, because Berlin got his very own version of the Walk of Fame. The Boulevard der Stars (Boulevard of the Stars), located in the middle of the Potsdamer Platz is Berlin’s newest tourist attraction.
The boulevard features German celebrities such as Marlene Dietrich, Romy Schneider or Michael Ballhaus. The first 40 brass stars were embedded in the ground over the last few weeks, while organisers say up to 150 can be laid there.
