The Festival of Lights

Every October since 2004, Berlin has had this crazy idea to light up a bunch of it’s famous monuments for a week or two. It’s called the Festival of Lights and I was lucky enough to be here when it happened!
Berlin lights up about 70 different monuments around the city, including the Brandenburger Tor, the Fernsehturm, and the Berlin Cathedral. One Thursday a few of us went out to see the sights. Being that there are around 70 sites, it’s easy to say we didn’t get to every single one, but we got to the main ones plus some others, so I think it was a good night.
It was well worth it too! I didn’t know what to expect. I guess I thought it’d be more like white lights on everything, but oh how wrong I was. Berlin was beautiful that night (not that it isn’t in general, but you have to give it more props than normal for this).
So here are some pictures I managed to get:
