Christmas lights at the European Quarter
This year, the spotlight is on the European Quarter with illuminations along the Jean Monnet Quarter (Rue Stevin, Rue Franklin, Rue Archimède, Boulevard Charlemagne), the Petite Rue de la Loi and the Square Marguerite.
The highlight of the Christmas lights is Sky Castle, a monumental lightwork at the Schuman esplanade. It is an interactive sound and light installation, made up of 5 inflatable arches of 5 meters high that unfold into a colourful symphony.
Sky Castle welcomes visitors from 30 November 2021 to 1 January 2022, from 1 pm to midnight.
