Behind the glow of the Christmas lights is not only creative design and experienced expert knowledge, but also sophisticated logistics. The latest technologies and materials are used to illuminate the almost 90 trees along the Stubenring, Schubertring and Kärntner Ring sections, as well as the 36 arcades, so-called “light gates” stretching over the roadway.
Did you know that a Light gate is 9.5 meters long, but only weighs about 45 kilograms? This is possible because of modern lightweight construction. On a single sheet however, 1.440 LEDs are mounted, which also enable a magnificent color spectacle using RGB control. In total more than 8.6 km of light chains are distributed – the length would be enough to illuminate the route from Schönbrunn Palace to the Vienna Prater.
