Water Light Festival

The Brixen Water Light Festival powered by Durst takes place in April – May. On the occasion of the 4th edition, the festival was expanded in 2022 with installations in Franzensfeste, Ratschings and Neustift. Under the motto “Water is life – light is art”, local and international artists transform the various water locations into a sea of light with their creative ideas and installations. Reflections on ecological, economic and social aspects around the theme of water form the basis of the artistic creations. More than 20 fountains, the confluence of the Eisack and Rienz rivers and other cultural and historical treasures are reinterpreted and highlighted with various works of light and art.
