Austria's largest garden of lights - new circular route 2024

Experience spectacular water, laser and light shows, unique light installations by international artists and impressive projections along a 3.5 km illuminated path. This year, the talking tree returns to Laxenburg and Franzensburg Castle will once again be adorned with a colorful video mapping.

As dusk falls, the castle park is transformed into a magical world of lights.

Installations by international light artists

In 2024, international artists will once again present new and unique light installations at Illumina, most of which will be on display in Austria for the first time. Visitors can once again expect an unforgettable light experience on the three-kilometer circular route with its annually changing light attractions.
