1. Sprechende Laternen

Show sight on map

The Talking Lanterns are a group of light figures in the historic old town of Celle. Five lanterns, which are modeled in their silhouette of different human character types, form a family of lanterns on a base of 4 m × 8 m. This consists of the slightly bent "Grandma Lilo", her little "grandson Jonas" and his three uncles, the accurately appearing "Perfect Lantern Mr. Westphal", the lanky "Long Lulatsch Olli" and the corpulent "Dicken Laterne Gerlach". Triggered by motion sensors, the lanterns begin to speak – either alone or in interaction with each other. Stored audio sequences are called, for example facts or anecdotes about Celle's old town or short, funny sayings and dialogues.
