Palmengarten Frankfurt

You can find winter light festivals almost all over europe. This year I’d made it to the “Winterlichter” festival in my hometown of Frankfurt which showed a reverie of arcadia in the dark.

Dark arcadia

Hundreds of lights turn famous Frankfurt Palmengarten on “Winterlichter” into a romantic reverie of inlighted landscapes. Trees, bushes and reeds where peeled out of the dark – an inspiration for garden lovers for staging their own garden.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

Edgar Allan Poe

Even the conservatories were in parts open to fascinate us of palm trees and exotic plants at night. Shaped by light, every tree turned into a speric phenomenon, silhouettes disappearing when the morning sun hits the garden.

Walking in a cold december night was like walking into your dreams, a poetic strolling into the beauty of shapes and forms.
