Light experience trail

The Light experience trail is lighting up Bruges for the third year running, and this time everything revolves around the 'word'. The trail, designed by ACTLD, takes you past 14 impressive light and word installations at well-known and lesser-known locations in the historic city centre. Magically lit squares and monuments come to life in poetry, slam poetry and one-liners. So many beautiful words from Bruges artists!

The Winter Glow app invites you to turn this Light experience trail into an even more wonderful experience. Join the enchanting conversation about the city, adding your own words. For a brief moment, switch between the real and virtual worlds. Point your mobile phone at the spire of the Church of Our Lady and experience this fantastic monument in flowing transformations and infinitely varying patterns of sound and colour. Heritage in Augmented Reality. Staggeringly beautiful!

Between the Ghent Gate and the Lake of Love Park, 'Whispers' come rippling to you. With an idiosyncratic soundscape, the following Bruges word smiths of the youth platform 'Jong volk' express their relationship with the city: Nina Everaert, Gerard Cornet, Karim Shatla, Lucy Lu and Ward Rosseel.

Can you feel the words bubbling up inside you? Then why not submit a haiku and see your poem projected onto the Rozenhoedkaai and the city's facades. A haiku is a short poem of 3 lines of which the first and the third line have 5 syllables and the second line 7 syllables.
