For all those who love fireworks, be sure to visit Cologne in July for the annual Kölner Lichter a stunning display of light and sound. Though the main focus of the event is on the fireworks themselves there is much more to enjoy in the city. Throughout the entire day the city comes alive with anticipation as candles and sparklers are handed out to residents. Thousands come to the riverbanks to experience the show and to add their own lights to the event. Come early to get a good spot so you can see the procession of boats and have full view of the festivities.
