Projections, among others by light specialists from "Spectaculaires", on the school building in front of the Berntor, a show in the main alley, various installations in the museum and a light and sound spectacle in the German Church are the main attractions of the festival. National, international and regional artists present their animations and light messages on different arteplages, which create a poetic adventure.
