Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Lightgrenze, translated to light border, places lighted balloons where the wall used to be.
From the 7th – 9th of November the 15.3 kilometer frontier that once divided the city center will be re-imagined in light by thousands of illuminated balloons. Running through the center of Berlin, from Bornholmer Straße to the Oberbaumbrücke, the installation will stretch past the Mauerpark, along the Berlin Wall memorial on Bernauer Straße through to the Brandenburg Gate, over Potsdamer Platz to Checkpoint Charlie and on to the East Side Gallery.
Be sure to watch the highlight video to the 57-second mark for a bird’s eye view of the lights. Impressively nice.
