In 2022 the 18th edition of the Festival of Lights takes place in Berlin and is traditionally held under the patronage of the governing mayor of Berlin.

During this event many landmarks, historical places, streets, squares, trendy neighborhoods, and interesting places of recent Berlin history will be spectacularly illuminated for ten days in October.

The start of the Festival of Lights is on the 7th of October at 8 PM and ends on the 16th. The illuminations of numerous landmarks and buildings throughout the city will be turned on. Every festival visitor is invited to attend the start of the Festival of Lights live at one of the participating landmarks. Most of the illuminations will be displayed from 7 PM until midnight all of the ten days of the festival.

The motto for 2022 is "Visions of our Future" as companies and organizations were requested to create futuristic images around various important themes such as sustainability, scientific discovery, mindfulness, humanity, and diversity.

There are around 70 locations that are expected to become works of light art this year. Among others, these include the Bode Museum, Bebelplatz, the Berlin Cathedral, the TV Tower, the Nikolai Quarter, Oberbaum Bridge, St. Hedwig's Cathedral, the State Opera House on the Linden, the Hotel de Rome, the Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz, the Radio Tower, the Victory Column, Charlottenburg Palace and Berlin Central Station.
