Once a year, everyone in Cologne comes together around the Rhine and its world-famous promenade to look together into the starry sky. Kölner Lichter is a large-scale firework display in the middle of the river. From a ship, countless colorful rockets and bright lights are shot into the summer sky and transform it into one grandiose light show. This event is one of the Cologne summer´s highlights.
