China Lights


The China Lights at Cologne Zoo feature 75 light ensembles with atmospherically illuminated animal and fantasy figures in Asian style.

An XXL illuminated dragon welcomes you on the lawn at the main entrance. The actual tour starts with a walk through the entrance gate with illuminated macaws and bears - an impressive door opener into the world of lighting art.
