LUMINIS is a sensuous artistic lighting experience that takes place on a route to various gardens at Egeskov. This year you can experience it during the danish winter holidays, where the route is a 2 km long walk in the winter darkness. Along the way, you meet beautiful and different light and sound installations, from a large number of international artists.

The tour starts at the garden entrance and leads you via the moat towards the cafe garden, around the Dahlia garden and Fuchsia garden, and via the forest’s outer border to the Renaissance garden, past the English Garden and ending at the large classic car museum. Along the way, you see beautiful light pieces as well as an approx. 6 min. show on the facade of the castle.

LUMINIS is brought to life by students from the Royal Theatre’s Ballet School Odense, who perform in and around the various light works. The collaboration between Egeskov and the ballet school helps to provide experience for the students, who have been involved in the entire process from idea to choice of performance, music, and performing arts and to settlement in front of the audience.

Try a real ice skating rink
Are you skilled as a real skating princess or more “Bambi on ice”? Either way, it’s just fun to run on ice skates, especially in the dark with the most beautiful light. Ice rink: DKK 50 incl. skate rental.

LUMINIS is created in close collaboration with Dutchman Robert ten Caten from Lumen In Art, who creates the lighting event “Light Castle Festivals”, which takes place in castles throughout Europe. The works are created from a sustainable perspective. www.lumeninart.com
