Lichterwelt Magdeburg shines til 2 February 2022
More sparkle isn't possible! Almost 1.2 million lights transform Magdeburg this winter into an incomparable sea of lights. For the 3rd Lichterwelt (world of lights), the state capital ups the ante again: A dozen new light elements decorate the entire city.
From the five-meter-high Magdeburg Horseman made of thousands of LED lights to the spectacular, sparkling hemisphere experiment to the larger-than-life nativity scene in front of our cathedral: Magdeburg's World of Lights can take place again this winter and provides a lot of joy.
Over the past few weeks, technicians from the Polish company Multidekor have strung together kilometers of fairy lights, adorned the entire city center with golden Christmas baubles and decorated house facades with lights.
The result will shine from November 22, 2021 to February 2, 2022.

The general regulations apply at the Magdeburg Christmas Market. It is recommended to wear a mouth-nose covering if the distances cannot be kept. Physical contact should be avoided.
Good to know: Dispensers with disinfectant will be available for guests in Cathedral Square.
