Map & App
During the festival you can use the app Copenhagen Light Festival – Within10Minutes. Here you can see where the works are in relation to where you are, read and hear about works and artists, switch routes on and off, or find your own path between the works.
The festival’s lighting installations are primarily located in Copenhagen’s Inner City.
Electric cars, hydrogen cars and electric motorcycles can park for free at street level on public parking spaces.
The festival’s works are not located in the same places every year, but always primarily in the Inner City. Therefore, it will typically be an opportunity to get off at metro stations such as: Kongens Nytorv, Gammel Strand, Christianshavns Torv, Nørreport and Rådhuspladsen.
