Festival of Light

mystical world of light and sound

From January 30 to February 19, 2017 the seven-hectare garden of Swarovski Crystal Worlds will be transformed into a mystical world of light and sound. The Festival of Light consists of four unique installations that light up after sunset, together with a perfectly coordinated sound concept.

This spectacle presents visitors with a world of contrasts, where light meets shadow, silence meets sound, and nature meets technology and creates completely new moments of wonder.

Unique light and laser show

Every day from 17:00 onwards, these coincide every 20 minutes to create a spectacular show which, together with perfectly coordinated sound elements, creates new surprises in every corner of the park.

Four Installations

    The façade of the playtower appears to stretch up into the night sky, while gleaming white laser beams form faceted crystal patterns in a vast sculpture of light.

    “Red loves Blue” enchants its audience at the Crystal Cloud with a choreographed interplay of red and blue light. Visitors who venture down the path to the Mirror Pool seem to be drawn into a white sea of light and fog, as if they are merging right into the mystical installation.
