The Rendez-vous Bundesplatz is a sound and light show on the facade of the Federal Palace in Berne. In 2017, an estimated 440000 spectators came to the show, which was inspired by the history of Martin Luther’s Reformation. 2017 marked the 500th anniversary of the publication of his 95 theses. The 2022 edition, focussing on the theme “Point Nemo”, took place from 22 October to 26 November. To cut energy consumption, the festival did not provide any shows on Mondays – as a result, around 15% savings have been achieved. The event had 449,000 visitors.

Dates of the previous/upcoming edition: 19 October 2023 – 23 November 2024
