When the nights get longer, selected palaces, museums, galleries and other cultural institutions invite you to the art and culture nights.

At the Ludwigsluster KUKUNA, idyllic courtyards and historic houses become a stage. Ludwigslust Palace invites you to a guided tour of the palace clock to mark the occasion.

In October, the town of Klütz opens its doors and gates to the Klützer KulTOURnacht when night falls. Whether music, painting, literature, fascinating light installations, relaxation, goldsmithery or puppet shows.

„Pay nothing once – experience a lot“ applies to the Schweriner Lichtbummel. Light experiences and atmospheric lighting invite you to discover the city.
