The FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS™ is taking place from 10 to 21 October 2012 and kicks off with a spectacular opening ceremony. Until 21st October, Berlin will sparkle as a range of illuminations and projections light up more than 50 famous landmarks and spaces, including Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral and the radio tower. For the first time, the landmark Europa-Center, as well as Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in the west of the city will be illuminated.

Special “lightseeing” tours on the Light-Liner bus, by boat on the Light-Ship, on foot with the Light-Cruso or by rickshaw with the Light-Velo will give locals and visitors alike the chance to experience the creative compositions up close.
-----------
Every autumn, Berlin is transformed into a sea of colour and light. A series of dazzling lights lend their own special brilliance to a host of Berlin’s famous sights, including the Brandenburg Gate, the TV Tower, the Berliner Dom Cathedral, the Funkturm radio tower and many more. The stunning nightly light show comes with art actions and cultural events on the topic of light. The city’s unusual, magical light attracts lots of visitors, with special Lightseeing tours offered by bus, boat or Velotaxi – and even on a nightly Light Run.

English language media is not covering this so I took the text from our city tourist guides

Hallo Angelika, danke, dass Du das schöne Video eingestellt hast. Ich würde mir das auch sehr gerne in Berlin anschauen, doch es klappt leider nicht bei mir, dafür kannst Du es umso mehr genießen :-)
Liebe Grüße Petra aus Oberbayern

:-// Leider ist dieses Video, das Musik von UMG beinhaltet, in Deutschland nicht verfügbar, da die GEMA die Verlagsrechte hieran nicht eingeräumt hat.
Das tut uns leid. :-(( sorry Catherine, UMG content is blocked for viewing here-too bad

Glad you all enjoyed the images and videos, it IS spectecular. Only I am a bit disappointed with how little fantasy the US embassy was illuminated in the past years. There are 2 pics of it in the small dynamic image gallery above the trailer vid. (red & blue building, if you move the mouse on the pics the browser's line on bottom will tell you what you see) click images to enlarge.

Catherine, is there perhaps another link for that show? Would love to see it, but blocked is blocked for that video :-//
