Recklinghausen leuchtet

The old town of Recklinghausen shines in thousands of colourful lights at Recklinghausen leuchtet. More than 100 buildings and attractions are illuminated – a new record! Thus, the “Gute Stube” will be transformed into a unique light experience world.

In addition to commercial and private buildings, churches and municipal buildings will also be illuminated – first and foremost, of course, Recklinghausen’s town hall. Parts of the city’s history are illustrated in the elaborately staged town hall show.

Recklinghausen leuchtet ends with colourful lights: The closing fireworks are set off!
