Light show Rendez-Vous back in Bern for 2023 edition

🚨 This event is no longer happening, check our events category for more recent events in Switzerland!

Last year, we already wrote about the impressive light show ‘Rendez-Vous’ in Bern. The light projection on the federal palace has turned into a real tradition. The first edition took place in 2011 and of course the event is back for 2023! Read below on this years’ Rendez-Vous Bern, that takes place daily Tuesday through Sunday until November 25 2023!

Rendez-Vous Bern 2023: Mystic

The 2022 edition of Rendez-Vous Bern took us to the most remote place of earth, Point Nemo. The show was focused on deep-sea creatures, with a giant octopus and seahorses dancing on the federal palace. This year, the light projection show theme is ‘Mystic’, and it definitely takes us on a journey to an unusual place again! Prepare to be submerged in a world of magic, with fairies, talking animals, singing trees and spectacular transformations projected on the Swiss federal palace.

The light show is about 25 minutes long and takes place several times an evening every Tuesday through Sunday from October 21 2023 until Saturday November 25 2023. The first show takes place at 19.00 o’clock every evening, with two additional shows projected on the Bundeshaus at 20.00 o’clock and 21.00 o’clock.
The event is free to visit and you have the best views from the Bundesplatz directly in front of the federal palace.

How to visit Rendez-Vous and practical info

The Rendez-Vous Bundesplatz festival 2023 takes place on the Bundesplatz in Bern, Switzerland. Entry to the shows is entirely free and the show takes place in the open air, rain or (moon)shine. Keep in mind that this event is extremely popular, and the Bundesplatz fills up quickly for weekend performances!

As the Bundesplatz is located in downtown Bern, it is incredibly easy to get to the Rendez-Vous festival 2023. The Federal Palace is a short walk from the main train station of Bern. There are several light rail stops in the immediate vicinity of the Bundesplatz.
