Hamburg, Germany – Council House.

In honour of the Sino-European Economic Conference in Hamburg in 2004, the organisers wanted to create a special accent and had the Council House lit up in blue. As the icing on the cake, the tower was lit by Pfannenberg Eiffel Tower flashing lights, thus captivating the observers with the famous Champagne sparkle. Many citizens and visitors described the project, which could be seen from afar, as innovative and, as the light artist Michael Batz, who arranged the lights, said: “on a par with large cities such as Paris or New York”.
