Only 34 minutes by car from our Hotel Continental, from June 28 to September 21, 2019, discover the Nuits Lumière de Bourges at the cutting edge of technology!
For 20 years, Bourges has been illuminated in the evening during the summer months.
This year, discover a new version of the Nuits Lumière, which will highlight the heritage of the Berry capital. New technologies and scenographies will be used to tell the city's history on the façades of emblematic monuments! You will always find as a common thread the blue lights and a mascot, the bear linked to the story of Jean de Berry. The scenographies will showcase the different eras and characters that have made the city what it is today.
A new path for this year 2019
At nightfall, from June to September, you will be guided by the blue lanterns of the historic centre. A new 2km itinerary will allow you to discover 5 new scenographies projected on different monuments of the Berruyer heritage:
