Murten Light Festival

From 16 to 27 January 2019, the Zähringer town of Murten will be transformed for the fourth time into a lighting spectacle in a show of superlatives. Artistic productions on buildings, in streets and on the towers of the old town will immerse you in a mystical world.

Let your wishes come true: Bring a lantern with you to the lake shore every day between 18.00 and 21.00 hours during the festival. Then light the candle and place the lantern, along with your wish, into the lake. With a little luck your wish might come true.

Lanterns can be ordered online or purchased directly from Murten Tourism.

Download the festival app, which will be available at the beginning of January 2019.

Be sure to dress warm and wear winter boots.
