Welcome to the town of light
Every October since the year of 2000, leading lighting designers gather in Alingsås. Throughout this time, dark evenings and outdoor environments are transformed into exciting lighting design installations. Facades are transformed into warm and colorful spaces, futuristic forest lakes can acquire a whole new perspective and these oases of light provide examples of good urban lighting and make for new and attractive venues in the city.
Lights in Alingsås is an important international meeting point for lighting designers, students and companies. Around 80,000 people visit Lights in Alingsås each year. It has become the largest exhibition of lighting design in public spaces in Northern Europe. Following a route through the town, visitors get the rare opportunity to experience top quality architectural lighting. We provide you with guided tours, as well as classes in garden and home lighting and different types of seminars. Lights in Alingsås also offers a number of other activities, such as concerts, exhibitions and theatre performances that are all related to light.
Begin your walk with a visit to Light Office. With us you can take a coffee break and get a brochure and a map of light installations. Here you can buy tickets for the guided tours. It is also from here that all the tours start. We also have souvenirs and information about anything fun happening in Alingsås.
We will help you if you have any questions, or if you want to book a guided tour or business package.
