To commemorate our liberation and to express this in a “Eindhoven-way”, the citizens placed in 1945 candles and light bulbs, just after the second World War. Since 1984 this tradition is repeated every year in a modern way to make a 22 km route through Eindhoven, that is illuminated by lights. By using hundreds of thousands of light bulbs, LED’s and gas-discharge lamps, volunteers spend their free time to entertain 200.000 people every year that drive, walk or cycle this light route. For this event, several dozen of volunteers, kilometers of cable, lots of lamps and lots of time and sponsors, are put in this magnificent event. With the design of stylized subjects all visitors are amazed by the beauty of light.
