Enschede Lights Up is the opportunity to get to know Enschede in a completely different light!

From 14th until 17th December, the spectacular light art route through the city centre of Enschede makes a big return. The theme of 2023 is "Here and Now". During these evenings you walk a free route through a real light experience from 17:00-22:00. The variety of technologies will amaze you.

Characteristic buildings and locations in Enschede are skilfully illuminated with special light, laser or video projections, and music. To wrap it up, street theater, stalls with food and beverages and a cultural Christmas market will be a warm welcome for you.

Tourist Info Enschede

The starting point of the unique free route is the Tourist Info at Langestraat 41 and from the start of December, this is where you can pick up the folder of the route. Especially for this event, the Tourist Info in Enschede is open between 17:00-22:00. This year the route will also be available digitally.
