Oh, lovely! Thanks for sharing! Are you planning to make a canal as well?
Assemble. Fail. Take apart. Assemble. Fail better. Have fun.

I go for English because @Klemmbaustelle and other internationals are reading along in your Canalhouse topic!

I personally have experience with both LightMyBricks and LightSTAX. Both are wired solutions. The last one mentioned has the advantage of lighted bricks, so you can easily construct them into a build. They also sell prefabricated street lanterns so your streetscene will be easily be constructed with lights.

Downside of these STAX things however is that you will have more trouble hiding the wiring. LightMyBricks has mega small wires, so they can be more easily hidden between bricks and tiles. The challenge with these is you have to "go pro" to stuff the leds in or underneith some bricks.

Sorry, was a bit lazy to use English. Thank you for the tips. I’ll have a look at these different solutions. I think I prefer wired solution. On Instagram I also found some sellers. I’ll keep you guys updated...
