Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall
Berlin is a city rich in culture and history – sometimes dramatic, sometimes happy. The relationship between history and the creative pulse of the city makes it unique for visitors and residents alike. 2014 was a milestone year in that history. Among the major historical events celebrated, the most important was the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Our Community Impact
Berliner Dom (Cathedral) with Television Tower to the right
As night falls earlier and earlier in autumn and plunges the city into darkness, Berlin is transformed into a wonderland of colorful “light art” for the annual Festival of Lights Berlin from October 10 - 19. For 10 days each October, famous historic city landmarks, monuments, buildings and places are illuminated with artistic light installations. Converting the city into what feels like a gigantic exhibition space, international and local artists present their ideas, stories and messages into artful displays using 3D art, projections, video art or illuminations.
