Again this year and for the tenth time now, the Festival of Lights and the Berlin Shines Festival took place during the first three weeks in October.
National as well as international artists presented light installations which transformed the city into a huge stage, numerous landmarks, historical places, streets and other important buildings throughout the city were illuminated with different colors and videos.
A PBC Tron Bike was placed at the Potsdamer Platz Arkaden in Berlin during this years Festival of Lights and will remain there until the 21st of October. The reason behind this is that the eBikes which were used during the Light Cycle Chase in Disney’s TRON: Legacy were designed by a German car designer, in fact, a car designer from Berlin and of course, the luminous futuristic design fits the current theme of Berlin.
The eBike, which is limited to only 10 pieces worldwide, is fully functional and was build in over 2.500 production hours. It uses an Apple iPad 3 as a controller and can reach a maximum speed of 200 km/h.
Once again, one of the largest illumination festivals in the world, the Festival of Lights, takes place in Berlin and world-famous landmarks and monuments are dressed in spectacular light. German and international artists and lighting designers present extraordinary illuminations, light art and creative designs. All 81 illuminated buildings will shine in different colors until October 23th daily from 7:30pm till 0:00am.
I will update this article with more pictures during the next week.
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.
The Funkturm or Radio Tower is a transmitting tower in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district in Berlin. The 150 m high Tower which was built between 1924 and 1926 is part of the Berlin trade fair ground and a protected monument.
At night, the Tower shines in a wonderful white or sometimes in orange, during the Festival of Lights, he was also covered with red bulbs.
The fifth Festival of Lights has ended, during the last two weeks, you were able to see Berlin in a different light.
Since 2005, every year in October, Berlin turns into a sparkling metropolis,
about 5000 LED-lamps, 750 LED-spotlights and 900 Fluorescent lamps, were used this time to illuminate 59 world-famous historical landmarks and spots in Berlin,
for the biggest festival in the history of the Festival of Lights.
