From 5pm on 6 December 2013 the pedestrian area of Neustadt am Rübenberge (near Hannover) will be transformed by the town's Festival of Lights, now in its eighth year. Neustadt's town centre has a novel approach to lighting. Instead of regular street lamps, spotlights are mounted on the buildings. These are then fitted with colour filters to produce a spectacular light show on the front of the buildings. And that's not all – the festival also boasts the world's strongest projector, fire artists and fantastic food and drink. Watch as buildings are brought to life and let yourself be swept away by a world of lights
With so many different events in Germany, there really is something for everyone.
