Light installation runs every night during Christmas Holidays
During the Christmas holidays of North-Rhine Westphalia, visitors can experience the highlight of the Landscape Park every evening; that is when the British artist Jonathan Park's light installation immerses the old ironworks in a fascinating sea of light and color.
From 21 December 2018 up to and including 1 January 2019 the full programme runs every night.
The programmes are linked to a twilight switch which, as night falls, launches the start (around 4:24 PM at the moment). At 1 AM the light will be switched off again.
Ususally, the so-called full programme runs on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and on Bank Holidays. From Mondays to Thursdays a reduced programme is run, limited to the illumination of the three chimney stacks and few selected parts of the ironworks. The light installation covers the technical installations at the heart of the ironworks, illuminating the steel structures, pipes, equipment, steps and bridges of the old industrial plant.
