Bright Lights, Big City Nocturnal Festival Puts Berlin Monuments in the Limelight

Over 50 of Berlin's best known sights will be illuminated in the city's annual Festival of Lights, which begins Wednesday. Visitors and locals will have the chance to admire firework displays, visit museums by night and take "light tours" by bike, boat, limousine and hot air balloon.
Winter in the German capital means that it gets dark earlier. Which is all the better for Berlin's annual Festival of Lights, which runs for two weeks in October.
