Light and sound show in Luxembourg City

The Christmas magic in Luxembourg city is the pleasure of iceskating on Place Guillaume II, savouring mulled wine, waffles and "Gromperekichelcher" - potato patties - on the market of Place d’Armes, Place de la Constitution, … Add to that the magic of Winterlights comprising three light and sound shows in three city centre locations on three evenings.  Luxembourg artists perform a space and time show and invite you to discover a real opera of light, sound and special effects transforming the outside of the buildings into illuminated, captivating and magical scenes.  

Are you familiar with the term video mapping ?

It is the name of a multimedia subject area consisting of projecting light or videos onto buildings or an architectural framework to create large images. The result, immersing the spectator in a 360° multi-coloured universe. A scenography made of monumental images or different pictures to create a ballet of light.

Sound is of course added to these projections, from a DJ session featuring live music or live bands and other techniques like motion design allowing for the creation of perception of motion stemming from synthetic images. Are you ready to enjoy this memorable experience?
