Where, when, how
The Light Festival route runs through the city centre, from the Baudelohof to Sint Pietersplein. The route is 6.6 km long. There is no start or end point, so you can start or finish anywhere. However, it is important to walk in the right direction. There are four information points along the route where you can pick up a map.
From 7 pm until midnight, from Wednesday 31 January 2017 until Saturday 3 February 2018, and from 6 pm until midnight on Sunday 4 February 2018.
