The Jerusalem Festival of Lights takes place in the Old City Jerusalem. Visitors perceive the artwork of the festival by walking through illuminated trails in the Old City’s alleys, squares and its surroundings. Over the past 11 years, the International Festival of Light in Jerusalem has become an inspiring and exciting event that merges light art, sound, the Old City, its inhabitants and hundreds of thousands of visitors into a celebration of art and culture in this very unique place.
We invite you to walk along the illuminated trails and take part in this very special event that combines the enchanted atmosphere of the Old City with innovative and challenging installations.
