We start walking together in the Circuit of Light Installations, we stop by the riverside and admire the works of Lights On Bega, but we also don’t forget The Lighthouse, the zero point of the festival. All this while the city reveals itself to us, leaving us to read its stories and see them, through the glasses of new perspectives, the architectural uniqueness and the legacy of the local heritage.

With the help of the accredited tourist guides from Timisoara Tour Guide, the night walks of Lights On – The Night-Art Festival turn into guided tours, every evening starting at 22:00 and 00:00*.

Inspired by the NightSeeing series of Leni Schwendinger, well-known creator of night tours in cities such as New York, London, Berlin or Paris, these tours will give participants the opportunity to discover the beauty and charm of Timișoara in a new and exciting way. Light installations will help us discover new dimensions and valences of the places we travel, while urban lighting will be our support and witness in this journey in which we bring the city to the fore, with its architectural details, monuments, public spaces and many other elements, and we turn it into a lesson of history, life and art.

Don’t be afraid to look at the city in a different way, to decode its shadows of dazzling lights in order to discover the potential of the night, to understand it.

*Tours will be offered in both Romanian and English to a maximum of 30 participants/evening, without age limit.
