Rostock (dpa/mv) - The traditional Warnemünde tower lights at New Year will take place again this year after the cancellation in 2021 and the postponement in 2022. "We want to send a signal in a time full of uncertainties, giving the locals and guests in the Baltic Sea resort a moment in which they can be well entertained and fascinated," said Matthias Fromm, tourism director of the city of Rostock, on Tuesday.
According to the information, the event consisting of laser, light, music show and fireworks had attracted up to 90,000 onlookers in previous years. This year the event is intended to be both a commemoration and an anniversary. "This year we will focus on the 125th anniversary of the Warnemünde lighthouse and the loss of Klaus Möller. As chairman of the lighthouse association, his members were always important to him," said Torsten Sitte, the director of the production.
According to the organizers, it is thanks to the sponsors that the tower lighting can take place free of charge despite the energy crisis. This is not a matter of course.
