Brilliant prospects for LUMAGICA Hückelhoven

Thousands of lights to create highlights in the dark season

Majestic light sculptures between the trees have already captivated young and old twice: The Haldenzauber stockpile magic has already thrilled about 100,000 visitors. After taking a break last winter due to Covid, it is soon that time again: From 26 November 2021 to 9 January 2022, 350 light objects, around 300 kilometres of fairy lights and over 300,000 light points will enchant visitors young and old at the Millicher Halde. 

LUMAGICA Hückelhoven IS TAKING PLACE FROM 26 NOVEMBER 2021 TO 9 JANUARY 2022 at the Millicher Halde.

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

YOU ARE TRAVELLING BY MOTORHOME?

About the Hückelhoven light park

This year, the main focus of the display is on the underground connection that was planned between Sophia-Jacoba Colliery and the neighbouring Dutch Staatsmijn Beatrix coal mine. Officially, these plans were never completed. But inofficially? Visitors will embark on a fantastic journey into the interior of an old tunnel, get to the bottom of the myth and meet unexpected guests. The cooperation between MK Illumination, the global market leader of festive decorative lighting concepts of Innsbruck, and Stadtmarketing Hückelhoven will, again, delight the whole of the Maas-Rhine Euregio in the run-up to Christmas for the third time. The stockpile will be transformed into a course of light installations, interactive light objects, and music-synchronous displays. “A newly developed part of the forest in the East of the stockpile extends the circular route through the light park. This gives visitors the opportunity to explore a completely new area. Similar to a zoo or a botanical garden, the stockpile site offers its visitors sufficient space to observe the social distancing measures at all times.“, says Carsten Forg, Managing Director of Stadtmarketing Hückelhoven GmbH.

Even more interactive

Visitors will be in for some surprise effects from a variety of light objects at the stockpile that invite you to interact with the display. For example, you will be able to light a campfire near Jacob’s Ladder and listen to an old man talking about his expedition. The previous Sound of Stars clearing will turn into a crater landscape. Here you can trigger an animation using Morse code. Furthermore, there is a music-synchronous light show taking place from 5 pm every hour on the hour. “Our intention is to bring light into the dark season and to create a special and completely novel experience for our visitors, every year anew“, explains Sebastian Bau, project manager of LUMAGICA Haldenzauber for MK Illumination. “Unlike the crowded Christmas markets, the Haldenzauber stockpile magic is a pre-Christmas oasis where the whole family can spend an evening in a festive and Christmassy atmosphere.“ “Many of us will remember the past few months for a long time due to the Corona pandemic. This makes it all the more important to experience the coming Christmas season in a particularly positive light. LUMAGICA Haldenzauber is a perfect occasion for this. Come and visit us at the Millicher Halde stockpile and be enchanted by the magical light park“, adds Bernd Jansen, Mayor of the City of Hückelhoven. Cooperating with the Kreissparkasse Heinsberg, the EBV (German National Petroleum Stockpiling Agency) as well as wep – Wärme-, Energie- und Prozesstechnik GmbH, we can, once again, count on some strong support from local partner companies this year. They play an important role in making the event a special experience for the people in this area.

Informationen zu Öffnung & Besuchszeiten

Wir haben heute 08.01. und morgen 09.01.2022 wieder geöffnet!

Liebe Besucher des Haldenzauber,

Zunächst einmal möchten wir uns für die Ihnen entstandenen Unannehmlichkeiten aufgrund der kurzfristigen Schließung der Veranstaltung am gestrigen Abend, 07.01.2022 entschuldigen. Unser gesamtes Team war vor Ort und einsatzbereit, aber die eingetretenen Umstände, wie eine nicht mehr zu garantierende Verkehrssicherheit unserer Besucher aufgrund der durch tagelangen schweren Regenfällen aufgeweichten Böden und ein größerer Vandalismus-Schaden, ließen den Verantwortlichen vor Ort keine andere Wahl, als den Haldenzauber nicht zu öffnen. Bis zuletzt wurde alles versucht, eine Öffnung zu ermöglichen, aber alleine die Sicherheitsbedenken ließen uns keine andere Wahl. Das Team vom Bauhof in Hückelhoven hat nun heute seit den frühen Morgenstunden alles gegeben, um eine Öffnung für die letzten beiden Abende zu ermöglichen. Da für heute und morgen auch wieder starker Regen gemeldet ist, weisen wir alle Besucher ausdrücklich darauf hin, unbedingt festes, möglichst wasserdichtes Schuhwerk zu tragen. Die Besucher, die Tickets für den gestrigen Abend gekauft hatten können entweder heute oder morgen zu einer beliebigen Zeit und ohne Voranmeldung zum Haldenzauber kommen oder sie schicken eine Email an lumagica@reservix.de mit Ihrer Bestellnummer und der Bitte um Rückerstattung der Tickets. Außerdem besteht die Möglichkeit, eine Gutschrift für das kommenden Jahr zu buchen.      

Vielen Dank für Ihr Verständnis und den Besuchern heute und morgen ein schönes Haldenzauber-Erlebnis..

Laut der aktuellen COVID-19 Verordnung des Bundeslandes NRW hat LUMAGICA Hückelhoven für Sie geöffnet. Alle zum Zeitpunkt der Ausstellung gültigen COVID-19-Bestimmungen werden selbstverständlich eingehalten.

Aufgrund der seit heute (28.12.2021) geltenden Verordnung dürfen zeitgleich nur 750 Personen auf der Halde sein. An der Abendkasse sind daher nur begrenzt Karten verfügbar und frühestens für einen Besuch ab 18.00 Uhr. Bitte stellen Sie sich auf Wartezeiten ein. Generell empfehlen den Erwerb eines Online-Tickets vorzugsweise für die Zugangszeiten ab 18.30 Uhr.

Wetter- und Wegesituation

Bitte beachten Sie, dass die Wege aufgrund der starken Regenfälle in den letzten Tagen teilweise stark aufgeweicht sind. Wir bitten daher alle Besucher festes und möglichst wasserdichtes Schuhwerk zu tragen.

Besucherfrequenz

Wir rechnen mit einem erhöhtem Besucheraufkommen in der Weihnachts- und Ferienzeit. Die ersten Zeitslots sind hoch frequentiert. Wir empfehlen den Besuch zu einem der späteren Slots zu planen.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

The health of visitors and employees is a top priority for the organizers of LUMAGICA.

The concept of the light park observes the basic new organizational requirements. As an outdoor exhibition taking place in very spacious locations with staggered admission times, we actively avoid potential waiting times and crowds. Our extended and comprehensive safety and hygiene concept is implemented uniformly at all locations and supported by trained personnel.

This year, visits require consideration for each other, and we apologise for the inconvenience the additional measures required will cause.

All COVID-19 regulations in force at the time of the exhibition will, of course, be met and communicated here on our website and in the social media.

Furthermore, you then have the possibility to choose from a number of 30-minute admission times. This way, the number of visitors is spread out more evenly.

At the Halde, we offer a special shuttle service to get people with prams, wheeled walkers, people with health problems, and people with a handicap to the Halde and back. Please note, that this might also include waiting time.

Also important: Haldenzauber is an open air event in winter. The paths are not paved but gravel paths. If the weather conditions are good, visiting the park is definitely possible. The only restriction may be in the area of the ”Magischen Wald der Tiere”, as this is only a path through the woods. Depending on the weather, those paths cannot be properly used by people with wheeled walkers or wheelchairs.

People with prams, wheeled walkers, health problems and people with a handicap can use the shuttle service of the WEST traffic to get to the Halde and back. Please note, that this might also include waiting time. If there are free spaces left in the bus, other visitors can also use the bus.

The last “descent into the valley” will be at 9.30 pm starting from the summit station

Depending on the weather, those paths cannot be properly used by people with wheeled walkers or wheelchairs.

The ticket price for both, going up AND down is 3€ per person. You can buy the tickets in the bus. Children and teenagers (up to 17 years) accompanied by adults as well as people accompanying wheelchair users are being transported free of charge. ATTENTION: People with prams, wheeled walkers, health problems and people with a handicap are of high priority. Only if there are places left, other visitors can be transported. Please note, that this might also include waiting time.

The last “descent into the valley” will be at 9.30 pm starting from the summit station

LUMAGICA Hückelhoven 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.

Grundsätzlich sind Hunde erlaubt, aber es gilt Anleinpflicht. Wir geben gerne zwei Dinge zum Bedenken:
1. The dog has to walk 400 steps to get up to the Halde and back again. ATTENTION: dogs cannot be transported by the shuttle bus.

2. At the main venue, there are music synchronous light shows every hour. The music is going to be very loud and also the light effects can affect the well-being of the dog. In the end it is up to each person whether or not to bring a dog to the light park.

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.

Should you get hungry during your visit to LUMAGICA Hückelhoven, there are food and drink options along the circular trail provided by our new catering partner. Enjoy a cup of mulled wine or a hot chocolate while trying some savoury or sweet food.

You are very welcome to take pictures of our light displays. We would be delighted if you could capture the special atmosphere of the LUMAGICA Hückelhoven light park and share it with us on Facebook and Instagram under #lumagica, #haldenzauber and #lumagicahückelhoven .
