Magic of Lights in Travemünde

Our resort lights up

When summer by the sea slowly draws to a close, a very special kind of magic goes to work in Travemünde. Celebrate with us the Festival of 1,000 Lights in the bewitching Godewind Park! Trees, lake and meadows are transformed into a sparkling sea of light in the evening hours. Enjoy the fairytale atmosphere with fire shows, live music and street theatre! Stroll past exotic light installations! Culinary delicacies await you, inviting you to linger while you let the magic of the moment take effect.

When does the Magic of Light begin in Travemünde?

Every year in September, Travemünde welcomes the autumn with poetry and fairy dust in the magical Godewind Park. In September 2021, the park and lake will once again be bathed in the romantic glow of countless lights. Every day between 5.00 p.m. and 11.00 p.m., you will be greeted by poetic performances on the enchanting natural stage in Travemünde.

In planning for 2021, we will be guided by the prevailing official requirements and a cautious degree of socialising, and we will let you know the format for bringing our resort to light in 2021 as soon as possible.

Our tip: On the Thursday, a large lantern procession will start at 7.00 p.m. from the cruise terminal / Ostpreußenkai and lead through Travemünde with the subsequent opening of the Festival in Godewind Park. This evening takes as its motto the expression “Silent Park”. Soft background music lets the light installations speak for themselves – enjoy the inspiration. The artistic supporting programme then starts on the Friday.

Here’s what awaits you at Travemünde’s Magic of Lights

Travemünde will see out the summer season in Godewind Park with a laser show, lake firework display and poetic cabaret. Atmospheric illuminations, artistry, live music and street theatre will surprise you on every corner on your stroll through the park and invite you to relax and enjoy. The special climax every year is the laser show on the Friday evening at 10.30 p.m. The major lake fireworks display is traditionally held on the Saturday at 10.30 p.m.

Culinary fireworks at the Magic of Lights

The light festival in Travemünde is an experience for the senses. Numerous food trucks will spoil you with international cuisine – from grilled specialities via tarte flambée and fish rolls to sweet delicacies. Enjoy a glass of wine, a beer, cocktail or a non-alcoholic drink in the transparent food tent on Seeufersteg, and watch the light spectacle in the park.

Admission free, but bring your own light with you! Whether it’s a tea light or lantern!
