It’s basically a set of huge lighting and illumination installations that stage Berlin’s most famous historical landmarks quite impressively during the nights.

Landscape of Stories

Welcome to a city of urban expression: Berlin’s citizens are talkers & writers, on the subway, in a lit group, on walls – so somewhat unsurprisingly, someone has published a book about the latter: “City Language” by Christoph Mangler.
