Far more than just a firework display, the Cologne Lights Festival is an immense son y lumiere extravaganza which transforms the Rhine into waterfall of fire, lights, sound and magic. The enormous display is synchronised to music, composed specifically for the event, and launched from a convoy of ships on the river. Throughout the day shows and parades provide the build-up to the grand finale, with cabaret performances, live music and culinary delights scattered throughout the city. The festival is Germany’s biggest fireworks show, and one of the most impressive displays of its type in the whole of Europe.
