The light festival (Lichterfest) has been held in Dortmund for over fifty years. The annual spectacle is an evening full of wonder for the whole family traditionally held during the latter summer months.
During the early evening people gather in the Westfalenpark to experience live music, children’s firework displays and various entertainment acts.
Strings of lights some six kilometres long and almost one hundred thousand lights and lamps of varying sizes shapes and sizes form the major attractions of the event. And as darkness arrives, the climax in the form of twenty minutes of fireworks accompanied synchronised with music wraps up an intense evening.
