Amsterdam Light Festival

Discover Amsterdam

LAST CALL! Today is the last day of the Amsterdam Light Festival, book your tickets or take a stroll along the light sculptors before they are gone.

This winter, Amsterdam will light up once again up during Amsterdam Light Festival. The historical center of Amsterdam will be the unique decor for this international festival. The city will be complemented by light sculptures, projections and installations by contemporary artists. A boat route will take visitors past artworks along Amsterdam’s canals and the Amstel. During the festival, light will play a central role in the city as museums and institutions organize light-related activities, introducing visitors to innovations in light art. The artworks present a unique take on the modern city of Amsterdam.

Lovers Canal Cruises
The best way to watch the spectacular light sculptures above and beside the canals is to take a canal cruise. Lovers offers a 75-minute Water Colors Cruise. Get up close and personal and see everything from the best angle possible. A guide will tell you the story behind each artwork. Relax and order drinks and snacks from a waiter on board and let the art come to you. Get your tickets now.
