Festival of Lights on Saturday

The Festival of Lights is one of the most important pre-Christmas traditions in Bergen. Tens of thousands gather to sing Christmas songs and to see the firework.

The Festival will be held at Festplassen / Lille Lungegårdsvann in the city centre at Saturday 29.11 from 16:00. The prime minister of Norway, Erna Solberg, will be welcoming the audience, musicians will entertain from the stage, and there will also be a singalong on traditional Christmas songs. It is an impressive sight when thousands of flare are ignited, and the firework lights up the winter sky.

If you are leaving Bergen after the semester and want a memorable happening at the end of your stay, or just want to get the Christmas feeling, the Festival of Light can be recommended.
