Lilu Light Festival Lucerne

This year there is a brand new light festival taking place in the beautiful city of Lucerne. Called the Lilu Festival of lights, it will be lighting up the city from 10th to 20th January. What better time to have a bit of colour and light to banish away the Winter blues – or is it Winter greys?

Lilu will be featuring an array of both Swiss and international artists showcasing light in all its fascinating facets. Every evening during the festival you can walk through the city of Lucerne between 6pm and 10pm and be enthralled by the stunning luminous artworks. These art installations can be found all over Lucern, in squares, tourist attractions as well as the little alleyways in the Old Town and dotted around the lake.

The highlight of the Lilu festival is the Genesis light show which takes place every evening in the Hofkirche, the Church of St. Leodegar.

It’s a “Son et Lumière” production and is truly amazing. You need to pay for tickets for this part of the festival but we would describe is as the true highlight and well worth it. Here are a few more photos of the Genesis light show:
