Lights out, spot on?! This could soon be the motto at the palace in Charlottenburg, at the Memorial Church and other public buildings. Because Berlin’s Senator for the Environment Bettina Jarasch (Greens) has announced that many sights will no longer be illuminated at night in order to reduce power consumption “in view of the war against Ukraine and Russia’s energy policy threats”. On the other hand, the organizers of the Festival of Lights still plan to artistically illuminate landmarks, monuments, buildings and squares from October 7th to 16th. Does that match? And what about the radio tower? There is a lot of news about this. The cross-off list, the arguments of the organizers, the exceptions of the trade fair company – we will report on this on Friday in the current Tagesspiegel newsletter for Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, which you can now order free of charge at
