Mainzer Sommerlichter – Mainz Summer Lights

This year, the Mainz Summer Lights event will be held between 28 and 30 July 2017, with this second edition of the festival also including the opposite banks of the River Rhine at Kastel.

Following a dazzling premiere in 2016, the second edition of Mainz Summer Lights is scheduled to be held from 28 to 30 July 2017.
