What’s around Lichthaus?
An overwhelming amount of shops, takeaway places and restaurants are within short walking distance, either directly in the Waterfront Shopping Center or down the road. Various cash points can be found in the area and you have access to thousands of free parking spaces. Westbad is just 2 km away and offers indoor / outdoor swimming pools and showers. You can get there quickly via Trams #2 and #10.
The “Lichthaus” is situated near the river banks of the Weser, opposite the truly huge “Waterfront” shopping center. The historic “Lichthaus” was built in 1916, therefore it is over one hundred years old by now! Considering its high age, it looks amazingly modern and in very good shape. Besides the artistically illuminated front entrance canopy, the building is notable for its complex glass roofing on every floor that gives sunlight access all the way down into the main hall. There are an estimated 200 windows altogether. Currently, the majority of rooms inside “Lichthaus” are let out as offices to various companies.
The current installation in the main hall prevents a clear shot with the camera, however this photo should give you a rough idea of what to expect. You’ll be happy to hear that we’re going to have super-comfy chairs! Luckily for us, the hall can be completely darkened! In the first year, the new location posed a challenge to our organizers as they were required to figure out a suitable table layout for the power and network distribution around the pillars. This year, it will be a lot easier since we already know what to expect. The pillars could be used for decorative lighting or to project stuff on. A part of the area upstairs will be used as a sleeping room. Best not to bring king-size mattresses, however, as the space available is limited.
The main party hall will offer space for up to 130 visitors, give or take a few, but there is more! The large grassy green outdoor area in front of the building is perfect for some Open-Air party atmosphere with BBQ grills and music. As always, we will construct a fence around the field so that you can pitch your tent on the grass inside it.
