Note: Festival of Lights from October 9th to 20th, 2013

Just a quick note:

The Berlin Festival of Lights will be on from October 9th to 20th this year.

So if you are in town, enjoy the illuminations.

Rehearsal already looks promising.

Like to add that there is some sort of spin-off festival as well, starting tonight.

It is called "Berlin leuchtet" (http://www.berlin-leuchtet.de/).

Here is a guide with all locations:

Man I just missed it by 7 days. Is this something that happens everyyear around the same time?

Yes, see and that's why I posted an event calender for Berlin:

Btw, I'm glad to read you liked your stay.

So maybe in 2014/ 15 again?

We went to the Festival of Light last night in Berlin. We hired a biketaxi (from a company called biketaxi.de). And our driver/rider was Wolfgang. What a great way to see the lights. This event is held every year and the main buildings are lit with amazing colours and pictures and look fantastic. Unfortunately it was cold and windy and drizzly but Wolfgang was terrific. He took us to Potsdamerplatz, through Teirgarten to Unter de Linden to the Victory Column (fernsehturn) which was definitely one of the best displays, then to Brandenburg gate (fantastic range of scenes), to Reichstag (which is not coloured but still impressively lit up at night), and Berliner Dom which was probably the highlight. Plenty of other places too and drove us back to our hotel in Alexanderplatz. 2 hours, 67 euro. Great night!
