FESTIVAL OF LIGHT Exciting Lightshow Friday, January 18, 2019 - Sunday, February 17, 2019, 8:30 - 21:00

The Festival of Light will be continued in 2019! From January 18 to February 17, 2019, the Giant and its garden will be lit up by countless light installations – and not just in the outdoor areas.

Composition of Light and Sound

This year, the Festival of Light starts already at 8:30 inside the Giant. As soon as it gets dark, at around 17:00, the seven-hectare garden starts to glow and creates a magic, mystical, and luminous atmosphere. To allow a longer experience of the spectacle, Swarovski Crystal Worlds is open until 21:00 (last entry: 20:00). 

On Wednesdays, our Daniels Kristallwelten surprises with an exclusive “Light Gala” menu. On Saturdays, the playtower turns into a cool blacklight disco

Light and Sound

During the Festival of Light, the lights in Swarovski Crystal Worlds come to life every 30 minutes and tell one of three stories. These are accompanied by breathtaking visual effects and specially created sounds.

The creative support for the Festival of Light in 2019 comes from the artist duo Playmodes, who will demonstrate their impressive artistic and technological prowess with their unique audiovisual concept.
