The illuminations of Strasbourg Cathedral are the spearhead of the festivities offered each year in the Alsatian capital.
The most emblematic places highlighted by a play of light
The most emblematic places of the City of Strasbourg are highlighted by a play of light : the Place du Château, the University Palace, the Vauban Dam and especially Strasbourg Cathedral. Each year, its theme, its history and its journey to better (re)discover the riches of Strasbourg’s heritage. The magic still operates on the forecourt of the majestic Strasbourg Cathedral. The building has put on its festive clothes and lights for the traditional summer illuminations which transform the nights of the city until August 28th. The RéfleXion(s) show promises a magical journey for about ten minutes, every evening after dark.
New features this year
But this year, the organizers saw things bigger. New features that already delight regulars and tourists passing through at the start of summer. Every Friday and Saturday evening, groups come to play live at the foot of the cathedral, to make the sound and light show even more magical. A show constantly renewed because different artists follow each other every evening. Another novelty of this edition, the six installations to discover in the streets around the cathedral. Games of vibrations and lights to invite the public to reflect and daydream. Every evening at nightfall, and until August 28, residents and tourists are invited to take part in the magic for a stroll through the city and a magical show on the cathedral square.
