Architectural led lighting for decorating remarkable sights of big cities has recently become extremely popular. We cannot but admire with wonderful illumination of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New-York City.
It is difficult today to imagine a megapolis without its lights, garlands and neon signboards. Lamps of different types and sizes are now used not only for the satisfaction of basic human needs consisting in the lighting of the room in the night, but also as a way to attract attention.
Many thanks to all participants of the workshop in Han sur Lesse which took place from 16 to 18 November 2017. 70 managers, show cave operators and technicians from nearly 15 countries attended the workshop. The meeting wasceremoniously opened by the Cave Lighting organization team and by the Domain of the Caves of Han (Domaine des Grottes de Han). Brigitte Malou (General Manager of the Domain of the Caves of Han) welcomed the guests and explained the aims of the workshop as well as program and schedule.
Two further show caves of the Swabian Alb have been equipped with Cave Lighting LED technology:
The “WimsenerHöhle” [Wimsen Cave] near Hayingen is the only show cave in Germany accessible by boat – you are taken about 80 meters deep into the interior of the water cave. The cave is now basking in a new and particularly impressive LED-lit ambience: specialist lighting was installed at more than 40 places, mostly underwater, which opens up completely new insights into this unique show cave.
A new era has also dawned for the Schertelshöhle [Schertel´s Cave] in the Alb-Donube district on the alb [Laichinger Alb] near Westerheim: Visitors are welcome to marvel at the beauty of this cave which is basking in a new light.
Both projects show that ecological and economic operation of a show cave are not necessarily a contradiction. Due to Cave Lighting LED technology, both show caves are looking to a sustainable and successful future!
