Every year the Festival of Lights decorates boulevards, squares, towers, historical and modern buildings, and many other landmarks in Berlin with colourful works of art.

This year the breathtaking illuminations took place between 8 and 20 October.

Ahram Online's Rowan El-Shimi and Ati Metwaly captured a number of captivating projections which illuminated the Postdamer Platz, Berlin Cathedral, the Brandenburg Gate and other spots in the city.
