Essen Light Fes­ti­val

Discover the Magic of Light

Essen Light Festival 2023

29th September to 8th October 2023

Be sure to mark the period from 29th September to 8th October 2023 in your calendars. Preferably with glowing letters, because then the Essen Light Festival will take place again in the city of Essen. It will be glamorous, magical and wonderful.

As soon as the sun sets earlier again, it's time to light up the evenings with fantastically beautiful light art. The Essen Light Festival is just the right place for this, not for nothing is it one of the top ten light art festivals in Europe. So get off the sofa and head for Essen city centre. This year, a compact festival awaits you, with 17 venues between the main railway station and Viehofer Straße. Take the WAZ route and discover spectacular video mappings, impressive light installations, gamings and light shows along a route of just under two kilometres. Visit the man in the moon, dance with the wishing tree or get a light blessing in the market church or cathedral. See the change in the city centre at Königshof and learn to save water in a playful way at Kardinal-Hengsbach-Platz.

All information on the programme and all installations can be found here .
