Light, art, music & cultural festivals - Hückelhoven, Germany


In November 2018, something truly extraordinary appeared in Hückelhoven’s Millicher Halde: a light park. Millicher Halde is a popular green area in the summer months, but it’s less used in the winter months. When MK Illumination proposed the creation of a light park to attract visitors and give local businesses a boost in the weeks before Christmas, Hückelhoven’s city marketing team were keen to explore ideas.

Visitors to Haldenzauber were enchanted by the over-sized light art, installations, and light sculptures that towered above smaller visitors, and thanks to the use of child-friendly standards like IP67, offered a tactile as well as a visual experience.

The event had a record number of visitors in spite of a few days of poor weather, and the feedback from visitors and the city was overwhelmingly positive. Haldenzauber will be back with new displays and lighting experiences in 2019.
