Discover the Magic of Light from 2 to 11 October 2020

Channel van Gogh or Monet and completely redesign the Market Church. Let the interplay of light and music work their magic on you. Take a journey through time. Make a wish come true. All this and more awaits you at the fifth Essen Light Festival! Get ready to be amazed as the WAZ route sets your imagination free. As in years past, light art, music and fascinating video mapping transform the city centre into a mesmerising world that you will quite literally see in an entirely new light. Whether you explore on your own, with a guided tour or with your smartphone, we wish you magic moments and an enjoyable experience at the Essen Light Festival.
