Lux Helsinki 2023

Kotryna Calkaite Quietly speaking colors 2

Lux Helsinki lights up the city again during the darkest time of winter. Almost 20 works, ranging from a more than 18-metre kinetic light sculpture to the festival’s first work benefiting from AR technology, can be seen in the downtown, Ruoholahti and Suvilahti.

Lux Helsinki is a light festival in Helsinki that is organised annually at the beginning of January. The festival presents a diverse range of light art. In addition to the most famous buildings in Helsinki, the route also highlights lesser known courtyards and façades.

Over half a million visitors come each year to admire the festival, which transforms familiar buildings and spaces into unique works of urban art. The unforgettable experience created by the power and beauty of light attracts people to enjoy this winter festival during the darkest time of the year, even on the coldest nights.

You can admire the magical atmosphere of light art from 4th to 8th January 2023 from 17–22.
