Illuminate your stay in a Berlin hostel with Festival of Lights
People looking to be amazed on a weekend break or holiday next month might like to travel to Germany and include the Festival of Lights.

A cheap hostel in Berlin could be the ideal place to stay in the city after watching the spectacle, which takes place from October 13th to the 24th.

The event - which is celebrating its sixth year - is set to feature an array of fireworks and projections, and there will be plenty of cultural shows on the subject of light.

Many of the city's landmarks - such as the Brandenburg Gate and Television Tower - will have various light effects projected onto them.

As the extravaganza will be occurring throughout the city it might be an idea to reserve a hostel in Berlin that is fairly central and booking in time for the Night of Open Doors on October 16th might also be worthwhile.

The latter features a behind-the-scenes look at Berlin including an insight into "specially-illuminated buildings and places at unusual hours", according to the festival's website.

But those who are into their music might be keen to attend the Jazz at the Ministergardens event which takes place in five national representations at In den Ministergärten street and will cost €20 (16.50) at the box office, while people buying early can snap up a ticket for €15.

Moreover, individuals who are keen on seeing the spectacle through to the end may want to book their Berlin hostel to allow them to witness the City Light Run, which features competitors pacing through the illuminated streets.
