Every year a magnificent attraction brightens up the late winter and early spring evenings. Stunning light installations created in all corners of the Gruga park in Essen invite visitors to interact at the Park Lights event. They form a magical dreamworld, where the desire for investigation and interaction is inspired.

Visible from far away these temporary works of art are surrounded by the silhouettes and shadows of other visitors, creating a mystical, almost surreal landscape. Upon closer inspection the shapes and forms become more understandable.

The Gruga park is a traditional enclosed recreational area instigated in 1929. Admission is charged during the Park Lights event.
