Brilliant prospects for LUMAGICA Düsseldorf

Magical world of nature and magic in a very special place

LUMAGICA Düsseldorf shines in a very special place.

Over the past centuries, many artists took their inspiration from Benrath Castle and its magnificent gardens. Equally, the concept of the 1.5 km light trail, which will guide you through the various areas of the park, draws on the rich history of the place. For example, you will encounter a light figure of electress Elisabeth Auguste in the French Garden, which, at that time, was reserved for her as a private area.

Lumagica Düsseldorf takes place at Benrath Castle from 19 November 2021 until 9 January 2022.

Leuchtende Aussichten für LUMAGICA

Neuwied Magische Natur- und Zauberwelt mit Industriecharme

Ab 24. September wird sich das stillgelegte Industriegelände Rasselstein für rund sechs Wochen in eine leuchtende Zauberwelt verwandeln. Magische Fabel- und Naturwesen, ein illuminierter Zirkuszug, oder wunderbare Klänge, die sich mit funkelnden Kugeln zu einer Symphonie aus Ton & Licht verbinden: LUMAGICA gestaltet in der Industriebrache im Wiedtal einen magischen Lichter-Park, der zwar an die stählerne Historie des Areals anknüpfen, sich dort jedoch die Natur auf fantastische Weise zurück erobern wird.

LUMAGICA Lichterpark findet in NEUWIED statt. Vom 24. SEPTEMBER bis zum 31. OKTOBER 2021

About the light park in Düsseldorf

There are more than 250 motifs and five themed sections to be experienced on your way through the park. On top of that, you can look forward to a breath-taking music-synchronized light animation as well as various interaction opportunities allowing you to change the light at LUMAGICA Düsseldorf.

“Making our castle gardens with all their history something that can be experienced as a magical place by families, couples, friends or colleagues, especially at this darker time of the year, is a great pleasure to us, particularly after this challenging time“, says Nicolas Maas, Chairman of the Benrath Palace and Park Foundation.

“With Benrath Castle, we have found the perfect location for the light park, since, above all, it’s the special location in combination with the unique light objects and interaction opportunities that fills the light park with a special magic“, adds Rouven Bönisch, Managing Director of the event group Gravitation Holding GmbH, pleased to have won Benrath Castle as a partner. Gravitation Holding GmbH holds LUMAGICA Düsseldorf in collaboration with the experienced ”light designers“ of MK Illumination.

What makes Benrath Palace so special is its resemblance to a fairy-tale castle: the architecture is distinguished by its fashionable yet deliberate departure from the outdated baroque and rococo forms of the Holy Roman Empire.

No other European architectural monument of this period is so well preserved.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

For the light park in Düsseldorf, the 2G rule applies. This means that adults are only allowed to visit the park when they are either vaccinated or recovered. This means:

  • People at an age of 16 years or older need to be either vaccinated or recovered and the need to show the respective certificate.
  • Exceptions and expansions to the 3G rule:
    • Children up to 6 years are excluded from any rules (please bring a photo ID to check the age)
    • People who are not allowed to get vaccinated due to medical reasons need to bring a medical certificate that is not older than 6 weeks. Those people can still enter the light park with an official antigen test (max. validity of 24 hours) or an official PCR test (max. validity 48 hours)
    • People between the age of 6 and 15 do not have to bring a negative Corona test result as we expect them to go to school and that they do tests there on a regular basis (please bring your student ID, if available, and a photo ID)
  • Vom 27. Dezember bis einschl. 09. Januar 2022 müssen Schüler:innen unter 15 Jahren einen 3G Nachweis vorlegen. Für Schüler ab 16 Jahren gilt weiterhin der 2G Nachweis. Für Kinder bis zum Schuleintritt ist kein Nachweis erforderlich.

LUMAGICA Düsseldorf light park takes place in any weather condition – including in rain. Please be aware of this when purchasing your ticket(s). Unfortunately, tickets cannot be returned due to bad weather unless there is an imminent danger to visitors. In any case, we recommend wearing weatherproof clothes and sturdy footwear.

In general, dogs are allowed, however, they must be kept on leashes. Also, we would like to point out that there are hourly music-synchronous light shows at the main venue. The music will be louder there, and the light effects can additionally affect the animal’s well-being. Ultimately, the decision is up to the visitor.

The circular route (self-guided) is offered as a one-way fixed trail and has a length of about 1.5 kilometres. Depending on how long you linger and how long your breaks are, it takes from around 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. Of course, you can take breaks on your way, thoroughly admire the fascinating light installations, or spend some time at our photo points to take a few pictures. Toilets and food & drink options are also available along the way.
