Nobel Week Lights

Nobel Week Lights is an annual light festival celebrating the power of ideas that change the world. With light installations inspired by Nobel Prize awarded discoveries and achievements the festival offers a cultural experience that is free and accessible to everyone during the darkest time of the year.


The festival is presented by the Nobel Prize Museum and invites both international and local artists, designers, and students to create large-scale public light artworks in Stockholm. The light installations are all inspired by the scientific discoveries, literature and peace work made by Nobel Prize laureates.


Since the first light festival in 2020 more and more Stockholmers have gone out for winter walks during the Nobel Week in December to experience artworks illuminating the work of the Nobel Prize laureates in new and unexpected ways, while at the same time having the opportunity to see the city of Stockholm with new eyes together with loved ones.

During the festival around sixty guided tours are offered in six different languages.


Nobel Week Lights is initiated and produced by Annika Levin, Alexandra Manson and Lara Szabo Greisman from Troika AB. The festival is presented by the Nobel Prize Museum with support from the City of Stockholm, Stockholm’s Chamber of Commerce, Fagerhult, FAM, Grand Hôtel Stockholm and Einar Mattsson AB as well as numerous other partners.
