Rückblick 2021/2022

Brilliant prospects for LUMAGICA Hattingen

Land of Fire shines in a new light

150 Jahre lang hat man auf der Henrichshütte Hattingen Eisen und Stahl erzeugt, geschmiedet und gewalzt, ehe der Betrieb 1987 endgültig stillgelegt und in ein Industriemuseum umfunktioniert wurde. Im kommenden Winter wird das ehemalige „„Land des Feuers“ in einem völlig anderen Licht erstrahlen.

Von 13. November 2021 bis 9. Januar 2022 sind die Besucher*innen eingeladen, auf einem rund 1,5 km langen Licht-Parcours durch unterschiedliche Themenbereiche zu flanieren, die thematisch an die reiche Industriegeschichte der Henrichshütte anknüpfen.

Lumagica Hattingen is taking place from 13 November 2021 to
9 January 2022 on the grounds of the LWL Industrial Museum Henrichshütte.

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 Hattingen light park

„„“Our partnership with LWL Industrial Museum Henrichshütte has allowed us to find the perfect location for our light park, as the eventful past of Henrichshütte enables us to tell the captivating story about the colourful industrial culture of the place through our light objects“, says Karl-Heinz König of MK Illumination.

Einen ersten leuchtenden Blickfang bietet der 55m große Hochofen, in dem einst flüssiges Roheisen für die Stahlerzeugung hergestellt wurde. Er ist noch vollkommen erhalten und die Plattform kann auch im Rahmen der Ausstellung bestiegen werden. Der zweite Hochofen wurde 1990/91 abgebaut und in Kleinteilen nach China transportiert. Ein leuchtender Drache und einige andere Motive aus dem Land der Mitte werden die Besucher*innen an dieses aufwendige Unterfangen erinnern.

Strolling through the light park, you will encounter important people in the form of light figures, who have significantly shaped Henrichshütte in its heyday, such as the founder of Henrichshütte Count Henrich zu Stolberg Wernigerode, or Sophie Henschel, both benefactress as well as one of the first important women in German industrial history.

Light motifs, such as rockets, ships, or a large clock, are reminiscent of the elaborate special designs produced at Henrichshütte. The illuminated ore pockets have many surprises in store, and a usually closed area is even opened to visitors providing new insights.

It is also the creative dialogue between industry and nature that makes a visit to the light park a special experience. Immersing yourself in the magical world of LUMAGICA, you will experience how flora and fauna truly reclaim the industrial site in a fantastic way. Where iron and highly specialized steel components were once produced and stored, you will now find peacefully grazing and glowing mythical figures and creatures of nature. A sparkling winter wonderland beautifully completes the fantastic visitor experience.

„„“Between the Land of a Thousand Fires, as the Ruhr area was once commonly known, and LUMAGICA there are many wonderful luminous links to immerse visitors in a fantastic world to learn more about the exciting history of the place“, says Curator Robert Laube, delightedly, about the cooperation with LUMAGICA.

Auch der Bürgermeister von Hattingen, Dirk Glaser ist über das zusätzliche Angebot für seine Bewohner*innen und Touristen erfreut: „„Der Lichter-Park ergänzt unser urbanes Angebot in der Vorweihnachtszeit sowie rund um den Jahreswechsel perfekt. Mit unserem Weihnachtsmarkt in der historischen Altstadt und nun auch mit LUMAGICA Hattingen eröffnen sich sowohl für unsere Bevölkerung als auch für Besucher *innen vielfältige Möglichkeiten, unsere Stadt zur dunklen Jahreszeit neu zu entdecken und auch etwas mehr über einen wichtigen Teil unserer Geschichte zu erfahren.“

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

For the light park in Hattingen, 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.
  • The control of digital certificates started already on 26 November 2021 and is executed through the Cov-Pass-Check-App.

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.

More information can be found here.

As is currently the case in many zoos and botanical gardens, there will be fixed-date tickets for LUMAGICA Düsseldorf this year. When buying your ticket(s), you choose which day you want to visit the light park.

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.

In addition, we only offer a limited number of tickets per day to make sure that there is enough space to comply with the social distancing requirements.

Yes – the circular route is barrier-free and thus wheelchair accessible. 

LUMAGICA Hattingen 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.

 

Depending on the weather (snow, ice, ...) it can happen that the blast furnance is temporarily closed. 

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.

Should you get hungry during your visit to LUMAGICA Hattingen, 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 Hattingen light park and share it with us on Facebook and Instagram under #lumagica and #lumagicahattingen .
