Lumen, Utrecht

3.3
Trajectum Lumen is a lightart exploration after dark, which follows 20 artistically lit locations throughout Utrecht’s historical city centre. When night falls, Trajectum Lumen takes you in 90-minutes from centrally located Vredenburg past a growing number of installations by (inter)nationally renowned light artists who bring the present and past of the city to life.

This special attraction highlights objects, buildings, street, canals and bridges in an artistic way, and thus tells an inspiring story about the city and its history. During the hours of darkness, take the opportunity to explore Utrecht in an entirely new and unparalleled manner.
Lumen is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Utrecht Edition.
