Kölner Lichter

In mid-July, the "Kölner Lichter" light up the sky in flames between the Hohenzollern and Zoo bridges. The impressive firework display is synchronised with music and transforms the view of the Rhine into a colourful sea of banyan lights, waterfalls and hundreds of thousands of sparklers. Every year a new musical score is composed for this major event. A huge convoy of ships marks the crowning finale of a colourful celebration, which has taken its course during the day in the Old Town.
