Once again this year the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE Karlsruhe 2022 will return to the baroque facade of the Karlsruhe Palace.

In August, in addition to new shows, popular projection mappings from previous years will shine in the heart of the city. The Light Festival, which takes place at the same time, transforms the city into a stage and exhibition area on which visitors can experience decentralized light art and illuminations.

The SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE Karlsruhe took place for the first time in 2015 for the 300th birthday of the city and has been delighting the public every summer since then. Over a million people have already visited the art experience on the 170-meter-long baroque palace facade.
