Stunning displays of light and color

Erika Clugston

Date: Mondays and Saturdays
Venue: Dorotheenstädtischer Friedhof I
Time: Half an hour before sunset

Make a trip to the Dorotheenst√§dtischer Cemetery for a splendid sunset-inspired light installation. Cool blues fade into brilliant pinks and soothing purples inside the memorial chapel. The permanent light installation by the renowned U.S. artist, James Turrell, is perfectly timed with sunset to create a mysteriously spiritual experience in neon. Attend the guided art tour every Monday and Saturday half an hour before sunset. A guided tour in English takes place every second Friday. Check the cemetery’s website for the exact time of sunset on the day you wish to visit.
