1. Sprechende Laternen

Show sight on map

The speaking lanterns are a group of light figures in the historic old town of Celle. Five lanterns, which are reproduced in their silhouette of different human character types, form a lantern family on a base area of 4 m × 8 m. This consists of the slightly bent "Grandma Lilo", her little "grandson Jonas" and his three uncles, the accurate "perfect lantern Herr Westphal", the lanky "Long Lulatsch Olli" and the corpulent "thick lantern Gerlach". Triggered by movement sensors, the lanterns begin to speak - either alone or in interaction with each other. Stored audio sequences are called, for example facts or anecdotes via the Celler old town or short, funny sayings and dialogues.
