Hannover is illuminated - "Hannover leuchtet"

The featival "Hannover leuchtet" takes place in November.

Hanover illuminated: In 2019, the Light Art Festival from 6 to 10 November is to illuminate various buildings in Hannover's city centre. The organisers have already published the following information:

  • This year's motto for "Hannover lights up" is "Digitisation".
  • Illuminations are planned at different light points, where you can interactively learn more about how digitalisation influences everyday life and makes it more exciting.
  • A special highlight will be an app that will enable every visitor to delve deeper into the light art festival and the topic of "digitisation".
  • The visual signpost, the "LaserLightFaden", once again links all the light points in the city and serves as orientation for visitors.
  • Visitors can participate interactively this year and experience the city of Hannover in a playful way.
  • There will be gastronomy stands at the most important lighting locations.

As soon as the programme is known, it will be published here.
