Serenade of Lights on the Danube in Ulm

As is the tradition the Saturday evening before Schwörmontag ('Oath Monday'), the cathedral city of Ulm will be hosting the Serenade of Lights on the Danube. When darkness falls over the Baden-Württemberg city in the Danube valley on 20 July 2013, thousands of floating lanterns will be released from ships onto the river, forming a sea of lights that stretches for miles – a scene that will stay long in the memory of visitors young and old. This enchanting event culminates in a dazzling fireworks display shooting up from a raft on the Danube, bringing a blend of excitement and romance to the night.

The atmosphere is made all the more delightful by the array of food & drink and the wine stalls set up on the riverbank.
