Share a picture of your favorite light display.

“Bonn leuchtet” — “Bonn Shines” — is the name of an annual event in early November during which some of Bonn’s public buildings (and city streets and trees) are colorfully illuminated at night.  Here are a few impressions from this year’s iteration:

Old City Hall (and Market Place):

Sterntor (the only remaining medieval gate / remnant of city wall):

A bit of fun fair atmosphere (thankfully not too much, though):

Main Post Office and statue of Beethoven:
