Experience Stuttgart’s extraordinary festive light show this winter

Share article

This year, we’re helping the Germany city of Stuttgart create a lighting spectacle in Schlossplatz that’s sure to take your breath away over the festive season and beyond. We’ve designed meter-high (and sometimes higher!) 3D light sculptures that celebrate 8 of the city’s tourist highlights, including the Stuttgart television tower, Wilhelma; the Mercedes-Benz Museum; the Porsche Museum; the funeral chapel; the Wasen; and two popular musicals on in Stuttgart, “Anastasia – The Broadway Musical” and Disney’s “Aladdin”.

And if the light sculptures themselves weren’t impressive enough, they will also form part of a stunning light show that will start every hour on the hour once the sun has set.

Energy-efficient & 100% green energy

If you’re conscious about sustainability and the planet, you’ll be pleased to know that all the lights in Schlossplatz use energy-efficient LED lights and the lights will be powered with 100% green electricity from Stuttgart City Works (Stadtwerke Stuttgart). The climate-neutral eco-power helps to reduce climate-damaging CO2 and make a contribution to a sustainable future.

Where and when

To see the bright lights in Schlossplatz, you’ll want to be in Stuttgart between Nov 28th and Dec 29th. It’s going to be something truly special, so don’t miss it!
