Lux Helsinki light festival will be guided by Glopas. Approximately 500 000 visitors are expected to visit these beautiful light installations in Helsinki. Now, for the first time

The 9th annual Lux Helsinki light festival organised by the City of Helsinki will take place from Thursday to Monday, 5 to 9 January 2017. Lux Helsinki will illuminate historical buildings and dark courtyards, leading festival-goers to the idyllic quarters of the Kruununhaka district. The new route starts from the Market Square and follows Mariankatu into Kruununhaka, the courtyard of the University of Helsinki’s Topelia building and the courtyard of the National Library before returning to the Market Square. The focal point of the festival will be Helsinki Cathedral, which will be illuminated on all four sides. Watch the video of the route here.
